From the Publisher: In Hooking Up, Tom Wolfe ranges from coast to coast observing 'the lurid carnival actually taking place in the mightiest country on earth in the year 2000.' From teenage sexual manners and mores to fundamental changes in the way human beings now regard themselves thanks to the hot new fields of genetics and neuroscience; from his legendary profile of William Shawn, editor of The New Yorker (first published in 1965), to a remarkable portrait of Bob Noyce, the man who invented Silicon Valley, Tom Wolfe the master of reportage and satire returns in vintage form

The pump house gang by Tom Wolfe( Book )

61 editions published between 1947 and 1999 in 4 languages and held by 1,804 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Running throughout The Pump House Gang is the central theme of most of Tom Wolfe's writing: Status. Much of the book deals with a surprising phenomenon in contemporary life: a determined retreat from conventional social hierarchies that Tom Wolfe calls "starting your own league." Surfers, motorcyclists, lumpen-dandies and . . . yes . . . stay-at-homes (see "The King of the Status Drop-Outs")—everybody's doing it. Except for die-hards in the crumbling old social worlds of New York and London, where the confusion is so great (see "Bob and Spike" and "The Mid-Atlantic Man") that nobody can tell whether this is really the path to the top they've taken or just the service elevator. Dazzlingly brilliant as a stylist, daringly provocative as a commentator, and always entertaining, Tom Wolfe is in his new book quite thoroughly . . . himself. He is at his best with the Pump House Gang, a remarkable surfing elite—who reappear briefly in a book published simultaneously with this one, The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, about the adventures of Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters, the rise of the psychedelic life style in America, and the founding of a bizarre new religion. In the midst of it all, many members of the redoubtable Pump House Gang become indoor sports—happily freaking out in pads rather than wiping out in the surf, but with the same unique Pump House Gang flair"--Publisher's description

Back to blood by Tom Wolfe( Recording )

6 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 803 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a police launch speeds across Miami's Biscayne Bay -- with our hero, Officer Nestor Camacho, on board -- Tom Wolfe is off and running headlong into the only city in the world where people from a different country with a different language and a different culture have taken over at the ballot box. This melting pot is full of hard cases who just won't melt, damn it: a Cuban mayor; a black police chief; a hot young reporter and a timid editor of the Miami Herald, both WASPs who went to Yale; an Anglo sex-addiction psychiatrist who keeps his lovely Latina nurse, Magdalena, in his bed and his star patient, a porn-addicted billionaire, on a string; a status-addled Haitian professor who thinks he's really French and wants his pale-skinned daughter, Ghislaine, to "pass" and his Creole-spouting son to be quiet. Then there are the clueless collectors who "See it! Like it! Buy it!", spending tens of millions per minute on de-skilled art at Miami Art Basel; black drug dealers colliding with Cuban cops; Columbus Day Regatta "spectators" who only have eyes for the annual après-race orgy; and "Active Adult" condos full of yenta-heavy ex-New Yorkers; not to mention a nest of shady Russians

Bloody Miami by Tom Wolfe( Book )

18 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Une invasion armée, c'est une chose, évidemment. Mais Miami est la seule ville d'Amérique ? et même du monde, à ma connaissance ? ou une population venue d'un pays étranger, dotée d'une langue et d'une culture étrangères, a immigré et établi sa domination en l'espace d'une génération à peine ? par la voie des urnes. Je veux parler des Cubains de Miami. Dès que j'ai pris conscience de cette réalité, j'ai trépigné d'impatience : il fallait que j'y aille. C'est ainsi que j'ai passé deux ans et demi dans la mêlée, en plein coeur de l'immense foire d'empoigne qu'est Miami. Il faut le voir pour le croire , ou bien (oserais-je le suggérer ?) le lire dans Bloody Miami. Dans ce livre ? ou il n'est pas question d'hémoglobine, mais de lignées ?, Nestor, un policier cubain de vingt-six ans, se retrouve exilé par son propre peuple de la ville d'Hialeah, la véritable « Little Havana » de Miami, pour avoir sauvé de la noyade un misérable émigrant clandestin de La Havane , Magdalena, sa ravissante petite amie de vingt-quatre ans, leur tourne le dos, à Hialeah et à lui, pour des horizons plus glamour en devenant la maîtresse d'abord d'un psychiatre, star des plateaux télé et spécialiste de l'addiction à la pornographie, puis d'un « oligarque » russe dont le plus grand titre de gloire est d'avoir donné son nom au Musée des beaux-arts de Miami (en lui vendant des faux pour soixante-dix millions de dollars...) , un professeur haïtien risque la ruine pour que ses enfants mulâtres soient pris pour des Blancs , un chef de la police noir décide qu'il en a assez de servir d'alibi à la politique raciale du maire cubain , le rédacteur en chef WASP de l'unique quotidien anglophone encore publié à Miami, certes diplômé de Yale mais qui ne comprend rien aux contradictions intrinsèques et complètement cinglées de cette ville, meurt de peur de perdre sa place ? et ses privilèges , tandis que son jeune reporter vedette, également sorti de Yale ? mais qui, lui, a tout compris ?, s'échine (avec succès et avec l'aide de Nestor, notre jeune policier cubain) à traquer le scoop qui lui permettra de se faire une place à la hauteur de son ambition... et je n'évoque là que neuf des personnages de Bloody Miami, qui couvre tout le spectre social de cette mégapole multiethnique. J'espère qu'ils vous plairont. C'est un roman, mais je ne peux m'empêcher de me poser cette question : et si nous étions en train d'y contempler l'aurore de l'avenir de l'Amérique ?
