Tom Wolfe, R.I.P.

leave a comment »

I freely confess to not being a fan of Tom Wolfe,  finding his body of work uneven.    Richard Brookhiser obviously liked him a lot more than I did and has penned a nice look at him,  here.

Michael Lewis has a more  autobiographical view.   John Podhoretz tells us  why Wolfe  was at his best writing about New York and New Yorkers.

UPDATE:  Monica Showalter says Wolfe  never got  a Nobel prize because he made the Left look stupid.
