Product description

Review

"A search-and-destroy mission against architectural pretensions . . . a funny book." --New York

"Full of insight . . . marvelously right." --People

"Wolfe's delightfully witty, biting history of modern architecture is a scintillating high comedy of big money, manners, and massive manipulation of public taste." --Publishers Weekly

"No wonder . . . this book is the hottest topic in Manhattan's architectural salons." --The New York Times Book Review

"Tom Wolfe has squeezed a funny tale out of glass and stone. . . hilarious." --The Wall Street Journal

"Sharp serpent's-tooth wit, useful cultural insight, and snazzy zip! pop! writing." --Playboy

About the Author

Tom Wolfe (1930-2018) was one of the founders of the New Journalism movement and the author of such contemporary classics as The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, The Right Stuff, and Radical Chic & Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers, as well as the novels The Bonfire of the Vanities, A Man in Full, and I Am Charlotte Simmons. As a reporter, he wrote articles for The Washington Post, the New York Herald Tribune, Esquire, and New York magazine, and is credited with coining the term, “The Me Decade.”

Among his many honors, Tom was awarded the National Book Award, the John Dos Passos Award, the Washington Irving Medal for Literary Excellence, the National Humanities Medal, and the National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters.

A native of Richmond, Virginia, he earned his B.A. at Washington and Lee University, graduating cum laude, and a Ph.D. in American studies at Yale. He lived in New York City.
