RE: Tom Wolfe dead at 88
I remember reading Bonfire in Rolling Stone (I believe) and couldn't wait for the next issue. Smile


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

I remember that, too, although I don't think I ever finished reading it. I can't remember why -- maybe my subscription to RS expired?

Anyway, the only complete book of Wolfe's that I ever read was The Right Stuff (about the early days of the US space program), and I enjoyed that one. It was a great story, and he told it in a way that no one else could have.
