    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. ,

    Tom Wolfe's acid-drop narrative chronicling the tale of Ken Kesey and his band of Merry Pranksters remains indelibly the 'long, strange trip' of the counter-culture canon of American literature. Written in 1967, the book provides a psychedelic mind-logue of Kesey and his congress of psychedelic sympathizers as they travel the country in a painted bus driven by 'Beat' chauffeur Neal Cassady. In those days, you were either 'on the bus, or off the bus.' And if you were zonked enough, it'd hardly matter, the bus itself could disappear before your very eyes. Wolfe depicts Kesey presiding over LSD-induced acid tests all along the mental watch tower of rampant, nonstop hallucinogenic experimentalism. 416p.
