Back to blood : a novel by Tom Wolfe( Book )

40 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 2,952 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A colorful cast of residents and visitors to Miami go about their daily activities, both legal and illegal. The police launch speeds across Miami's Biscayne Bay with officer Nestor Camacho on board. Into the feverous landscape of 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. He introduces the Cuban mayor, the black police chief, a wanna-go-muckraking young journalist and his Yale-marinated editor of the Miami Herald, both WASPs who went to Yale; an Anglo sex-addiction psychiatrist and his lovely Latina nurse Magdalena by day, loin lock by night (until lately), and his star patient, a porn-addicted billionaire; a status-addled Haitian professor who thinks he's really French and wants his pale-skinned daughter, Ghislaine, to "pass" for white (she is the love of Nestor's life); and her Creole-spouting, black-gang-banger-stylin' little brother; as well as crack dealers in the 'hoods. Then there are the clueless collectors who "See it! Like it! Buy it!", spending tens of millions per minute on de-skilled art at the Miami Art Basel Fair; black drug dealers colliding with Cuban cops; "spectators" at the annual Columbus Day Biscayne Bay Regatta looking only for that night's annual après-race orgy; yenta-heavy ex-New Yorkers at an "Active Adult" condo, and a nest of shady Russians

Hooking up by Tom Wolfe( Book )

18 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 painted word by Tom Wolfe( Book )

37 editions published between 1975 and 1999 in English and held by 1,602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Painted Word charts the erratic course of the social history of Modern Art from it beginnings in revolution - a revolution against literary content in art - to its present state, in which it has become, quite unconsciously, a parody of itself, obsessedly devoted to the pronouncements of certain guru-critics, to the point of reductio ad absurdum, to the point where - turnabout being fair play - it has become as literary, as academic, as mannered, as clubby, as the salon painting agwinst which it first rebelled

26 editions published between 1965 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 1,464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wolfe introduced us to the Sixties, to extravagant new styles of life that had nothing to do with the "elite" culture of the past. The Twist, the Beatles, the Bouffant Hairdos, the Kar Kustomizers (title piece), and much more are brilliantly given their place in history, and the older cultural guard, struggling to preserve the forms of its status against the rising tide of barbarism, receives ruthless and hilarious scrutiny

The kingdom of speech by Tom Wolfe( Book )

12 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 1,215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Before Tom Wolfe was a bestselling novelist, he was a groundbreaking journalist. Now the maestro storyteller turns his attention to the mystery behind the creation of his own most important tool: language. In The Kingdom of Speech, Wolfe makes the captivating, paradigm-shifting argument that speech--not evolution--is responsible for humanity's complex societies and achievements. From Alfred Russel Wallace, the self-taught Englishman who beat Charles Darwin to the theory of natural selection but later renounced it for its inability to explain human speech, to the neo-Darwinists, who for years argued that there is a language 'organ' in the human brain, Wolfe examines how science has repeatedly tried and failed to account for man's gift of gab. Flash forward to the present day and the controversial work of another outsider, anthropologist Daniel Everett. After thirty years of studying a tribe isolated deep in the jungles of the Amazon, Everett revealed a people whose prehistoric level of speech had led to a society without religion, ceremonies, hierarchies, marriage, or ornaments, and without the ability to plan ahead or to consider a past beyond personal lifetimes, thus defying the current wisdom that language is hardwired in humans. With trenchant wit and uproarious humor, Wolfe cracks open the secretive, solemn, long-faced, laugh-out-loud zigzags of Darwinism, both old and neo-, and he shows the endless importance of the courageous outsider in overturning our most cherished ideas about ourselves. Provocative and fast-paced, Wolfe's latest tour de force will have everyone talking."--Dust jacket
The New Journalism by Tom Wolfe( Book )

23 editions published between 1973 and 1996 in English and Spanish and held by 1,210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the short space of one decade, a new style of reportage has taken hold to the point where it has all but supplanted the novel as the most revered, prestigious and powerful literary form. Writers with reputations as fine novelists turned to writing the New Journalism; feature writers for newspapers, thinking themselves to be marking time until they, too, wrote The Novel, began writing the New Journalism. Tom Wolfe, who has watched and helped this new genre of novelistic nonfiction blossom over the years, here introduces, annotates and provides appendices for an anthology of the finest examples of the New Journalism written from 1962 through 1970."--From dust jacket

Back to blood by Tom Wolfe( Recording )

22 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 1,028 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A big, panoramic story of the new America, as told by our master chronicler of the way we live now. As a police launch speeds across Miami's Biscayne Bay-with officer Nestor Camacho on board-Tom Wolfe is off and running. Into the feverous landscape of the city, he introduces the Cuban mayor, the black police chief, a wanna-go-muckraking young journalist and his Yale-marinated editor; an Anglo sex-addiction psychiatrist and his Latina nurse by day, loin lock by night-until lately, the love of Nestor's life; a refined, and oh-so-light-skinned young woman from Haiti and her Creole-spouting, black-gang-banger-stylin' little brother; a billionaire porn addict, crack dealers in the 'hoods, "de-skilled" conceptual artists at the Miami Art Basel Fair, "spectators" at the annual Biscayne Bay regatta looking only for that night's orgy, yenta-heavy ex-New Yorkers at an "Active Adult" condo, and a nest of shady Russians. Based on the same sort of detailed, on-scene, high-energy reporting that powered Tom Wolfe's previous bestselling novels, BACK TO BLOOD is another brilliant, spot-on, scrupulous, and often hilarious reckoning with our times
