Wolfe, Tom

orig. Thomas Kennerly Wolfe, Jr.

born March 2, 1930, Richmond, Va., U.S.

U.S. journalist and novelist.

He earned a doctorate from Yale University and then wrote for newspapers and worked as a magazine editor, becoming known as a proponent of New Journalism, the application of fiction-writing techniques to journalism. The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test (1968) chronicles the life of a traveling group of hippies. The Right Stuff (1979; film, 1983) examines the first U.S. astronaut program. Other controversial nonfiction books attacked fashionable 1960s leftism, modern abstract art, and international architectural styles. His novel The Bonfire of the Vanities (1987; film, 1990), a novel of urban greed and corruption, was a best-seller. Wolfe's second novel, A Man in Full, was published in 1998.

▪ American author
in full  Thomas Kennerly Wolfe, Jr. 
born March 2, 1930, Richmond, Va., U.S.

      American novelist, journalist, and social commentator who is a leading critic of contemporary life and a proponent of New Journalism (the application of fiction-writing techniques to journalism).

      After studying at Washington and Lee University (B.A., 1951) and Yale University (Ph.D., 1957), Wolfe wrote for several newspapers, including the Springfield Union in Massachusetts and The Washington Post. He later worked as an editor on such magazines as New York and Esquire (from 1977) and as an artist for Harper's.

      His first book, The Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby (1964), is a collection of essays satirizing American trends and celebrities of the 1960s. The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test (1968) chronicles the psychedelic drug culture of the 1960s. His other works include Radical Chic & Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers (1970), The Painted Word (1975), From Bauhaus to Our House (1981), The Worship of Art: Notes on the New God (1984), and A Man in Full (1998). The Right Stuff (1979; filmed 1983), which examines aspects of the first U.S. astronaut program, and The Bonfire of the Vanities (1987; filmed 1990), a novel of urban greed and corruption, were best-sellers.

      Wolfe's Hooking Up (2000) is a collection of fiction and essays, all previously published except for "My Three Stooges," a scandalous diatribe about John Updike (Updike, John), Norman Mailer (Mailer, Norman), and John Irving (Irving, John), who had all been critical of A Man in Full. Wolfe's third novel, I Am Charlotte Simmons (2004), examines modern-day student life at fictional Dupont University through the eyes of small-town protagonist Charlotte Simmons.
