Radical Chic and Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers Kindle Edition
"What Tom Wolfe has done is create an appallingly funny, cool, small, deflative two-scene social drama about America's biggest, hottest, and most perplexing problem--the confrontation between Black Rage and White Guilt." --Time magazine
"Wolfe's genius is that he is fair; he puts the Bernstein part in perspective against the background of New York social history. Read it and weep with laughter." --Houston Post
"A sociological classic . . . At Wolfe's hands the socialites get a roasting they will long remember." --Saturday Review
"Tom Wolfe understands the human animal like no sociologist around. He tweaks his reader's every buried though and prejudice. He sees through everything. He is as original and outrageous as ever." --The New York Times
"Uproariously funny and socially perceptive . . . a penetrating dissection of the confusion among the classes and the search for status." --Women's Wear Daily
"Tom Wolfe at his most clever, amusing, and irreverent." --San Franciscio Chronicle
"Absolutely brilliant. One of the finest examples of reporting and social commentary I have read anywhere." --Gay Talese--This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Tom Wolfe has always had his finger on the pulse of certain segments of society. His books are often as timely as they are on trend. If you change the names of certain people and issues to things that are happening today, this book is probably even more insightful now than it was when it was written.
