My first Tom Wolfe read was The Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby followed by The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test. This was in the late '60s while I was in high school.

A few years later I decided that I'd rather be on the bus than off the bus.

Tom Wolfe’s Other Legacy
Quote:
The writer’s prose wasn’t his only notable stylistic gesture.

In the end, it may have been Tom Wolfe’s own chic that was most radical. Leave it to others to unpack the extravagant and often provocative literary legacy of the author, who died on Monday at 88. Of almost equal fascination are the contents of his closet and the cut of his clothes.

It is hard now to remember that there was ever a time — in the ancient days before visual branding became a requisite for figures both public and private — when writers took it as an emblem of seriousness to dress like proles. When Mr. Wolfe first blazed onto the literary scene, many, if not most, male writers persisted in dressing like hardscrabble characters from a Clifford Odets play or possibly denizens of the cartoonist Al Capp’s mythical Outer Slobovia.
Tom Wolfe, ‘New Journalist’ With Electric Style and Acid Pen, Dies at 88

Quote:
In his use of novelistic techniques in his nonfiction, Mr. Wolfe, beginning in the 1960s, helped create the enormously influential hybrid known as the New Journalism.

But as an unabashed contrarian, he was almost as well known for his attire as his satire. He was instantly recognizable as he strolled down Madison Avenue — a tall, slender, blue-eyed, still boyish-looking man in his spotless three-piece vanilla bespoke suit, pinstriped silk shirt with a starched white high collar, bright handkerchief peeking from his breast pocket, watch on a fob, faux spats and white shoes. Once asked to describe his get-up, Mr. Wolfe replied brightly, “Neo-pretentious.”
Quote:
“As a titlist of flamboyance he is without peer in the Western world,” Joseph Epstein wrote in the The New Republic. “His prose style is normally shotgun baroque, sometimes edging over into machine-gun rococo, as in his article on Las Vegas which begins by repeating the word ‘hernia’ 57 times.”

William F. Buckley Jr., writing in National Review, put it more simply: “He is probably the most skillful writer in America — I mean by that he can do more things with words than anyone else.”

Sure, go ahead.

Just make sure that you're adequately grounded.

Chuck Knox former NFL HC just passed as did actor Joseph Campanella age 93. Campanella wasn't famous or a household name, but he was an easily recognized character actor in the 60's and 70's. He appeared in Route 66, Dallas, Mannix, The Fugitive and Mission Impossible to name a few shows.

I could see Route 66 (60-64), because it wasn't on that long and I was pretty young, but The Fugitive? Harrison Ford wouldn't have been running from the law in 1993 if it weren't for the series.
