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

46 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 3,070 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A colorful cast of residents and visitors to Miami go about their daily activities, both legal and illegal. This is a big, panoramic story of the new America, as told by our master chronicler of the way we live now. The police launch speeds across Miami's Biscayne Bay with officer Nestor Camacho on board. 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

Hooking up by Tom Wolfe( Book )

41 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in 8 languages and held by 2,368 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 kandy-kolored tangerine-flake streamline baby by Tom Wolfe( Book )

105 editions published between 1965 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 2,168 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 painted word by Tom Wolfe( Book )

75 editions published between 1975 and 2010 in 7 languages and held by 2,000 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

Back to blood by Tom Wolfe( Recording )

18 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 1,047 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
