    Wolfe, author of such contemporary classics as 'The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test' and 'The Bonfire of the Vanities,' immortalizes American college life in the '00s in this jade romp across the spectrum of jock, mutants, dormcest, tailgating, race, class, sex and basketball. Academic achievement doesn't seem the point in the lives of this batch of privileged elite. Perhaps, it never did. At Dupont U., sex, `Cool', and kegs wear the mantle of success. Throbbing at the core of this frolicsome maelstrom is Charlotte Simmons, oblivious of her role as catalyst in all of the lives she encounters. 768p.

    On the night of January 4, 1970 Maestro and Mrs. Leonard Bernstein threw a bash in their thirteen-room Park Avenue residence to raise money for the Black Panthers Defense Fund. Tom Wolfe was there, salvaging froml his presence these two devastatingingly funny essays, closely related in theme and substance, dealing with the political stances and social styles in a status-mind world. 'Radical Chic' focuses on the symbolic event: a gathering of the politically correct to meet black radicals in an incongruous scene. 'Mau-mauing the Flack Catchers' follows the white liberal establishment to the West Coast, where it encounters the newly emerging art of confrontation as practiced by San Francisco's militant minorities in response to a highly bureaucratized poverty anti-poverty program. A sociological classic. 132p. ,

    First published in 1967. This much-discussed-over-the-years kaleidoscopic non-fiction novel chronicles the tale of novelist/acidhead/hippie Ken Kesey and his band of Merry Prankster associates and come-alongers. In the 1960s, Kesey ledthis intellectual cum psychedelic group around the country in a psychedelic-painted bus, presiding over LSD-induced 'acid tests.' Wolfe recounts the Kesey tribe's short-lived alliance with the Hell's Angels & their quixotic conversion of the biggest anti-Vietnam War rally into a veritable freak-out. The book stands as one of the more memorable, intractably vibrant odysseys of our time: a portrait of an era in which dropping acid led to dropping the ball...room. 416p.
