    RIP Tom Wolfe 
    #1
    Sad to find out one of my favorite authors, Tom Wolfe, passed today. Man could that guy write. I never read Electric Kool Aid Acid Test which I know was a classic but read almost all his other books. My favorite was "A Man in Full" I was riveted the whole way through that book.

    RIP to one of the greats of American literature

    He also had such great personal style. I love it when men kind of ham it up with their style. Unlike you, the only book I ever read was the Electric Kool-aid Acid Test. I do remember his articles from the 70's though. I'm going to take your recommendation and read A Man in Full, though Bonfires of the Vanities is such a great title!
