Reviews

Tom Wolfe', article: 'You only had to look at him... or read such books as The Bonfire of the Vanities and The Right Stuff to know that Tom Wolfe was like no other -- John Pye * The Scotsman *
The hero you couldn't hope to emulate', article: 'Journalism, it is said, is the first draft of history. Nobody exemplifies the dictum better than Wolfe, the cultural observer and social critic par excellence -- Mick Brown * Daily Telegraph *
Effortlessly, elegantly, Tom Wolfe bestrode both fiction and non-fiction... a style at once objective, subjective, and hallucinatory -- Andy Martin * Independent *
[Tom Wolfe's] gleeful use of punctuation and italics, along with entertaining asides and neologisms that often quickly cemented themselves into the English lexicon, helped Wolfe stand out from other journalists * Guardian *
[Wolfe] made literature fun and bores don't like fun -- Freddy Gray * The Catholic Herald *
