US author Tom Wolfe dies aged 88
Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test was a good read.
Loved Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test when I read it in the 80s. Bonfire of the Vanities is on my long list of books I want to read.
I only saw the dreadful film of Bonfire. Would like to read The Right Stuff, loved the film
Love Tom Wolfe.
I think I have read both the Bonfire of the Vanities and The Right Stuff at least 3 times each and I don't usually reread books. I just love those books so bloody much.
I don't think the film of Bonfire is all that bad but the book is so massive, it would be better as a series. A single film could never do it justice. And it's got Tom Hanks in it. And I confess to loving Tom Hanks
RIP Enjoyed his writing.
Oh! I didn't see this at the time. I read The Right Stuff on holiday last year, having long owned Acid Test and Bonfire. A great writer.
I've only ever read the Right Stuff - always meant to read more. Maybe I will now.
i crossed park avenue with him once. he was stooped. we looked at each other. neither of us said damn thing.
Anecdote needs work, frankly x
