♥ Book Title : The Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby
☯ Full Synopsis : "Tom Wolfe's debut collection of essays - a brilliant, form-bending dive into the future of America as it careened through the 1960s In 1965, Tom Wolfe dropped like a bomb onto the American literary scene with his first book, The Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby, an incandescent panorama of American counter-culture, its dances, bouffant hairdos, customised cars and rock concerts. Capturing the energy of the age in its portraits of Phil Spector, Cassius Clay, Las Vegas and the Nanny Mafia – as well as asking, why do doormen hate Volkswagens? – Wolfe’s flamboyant essay collection remains one of the great, revolutionary landmarks of modern non-fiction. 'Journalism, it is said, is the first draft of history. Nobody exemplifies the dictum better than Wolfe, the cultural observer and social critic par excellence' Daily Telegraph"Article| Tom Wolfe| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Spectacular Blackness
☯ Full Synopsis : "Exploring the interface between the cultural politics of the Black Power and the Black Arts movements and the production of postwar African American popular culture, Amy Ongiri shows how the reliance of Black politics on an oppositional image of African Americans was the formative moment in the construction of "authentic blackness" as a cultural identity. While other books have adopted either a literary approach to the language, poetry, and arts of these movements or a historical analysis of them, Ongiri's captures the cultural and political interconnections of the postwar period by using an interdisciplinary methodology drawn from cinema studies and music theory. She traces the emergence of this Black aesthetic from its origin in the Black Power movement's emphasis on the creation of visual icons and the Black Arts movement's celebration of urban vernacular culture."Article| Amy Abugo Ongiri| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Hooking Up
☯ Full Synopsis : "In Hooking Up Tom Wolfe ranges from coast to coast, observing the 'lurid carnival actually taking place in the mightiest country on earth in the year 2000' - everything from teenage sexual manners to how genetics and neuroscience are changing the way we regard ourselves. Also included in this collection are some of his most classic and enduring pieces of journalism, and 'Ambush art at Fort Bragg', his fiercely satirical novella about sting TV. Funny, often savagely so, hard-hitting and wise, Wolfe remains a unique master-chronicler of America and its future."Article| Tom Wolfe| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Radical chic
☯ Full Synopsis : "Radical chic è lo spassoso e tagliente articolo in cui Tom Wolfe descrive il curioso fenomeno sociale, sorto alla fine degli anni Sessanta negli Stati Uniti, del corteggiamento da parte dell’élite newyorkese di ogni possibile rivoluzionario radicale, dagli antimilitaristi agli hippy psichedelici. L’occasione che ispirò a Wolfe la celebre definizione «radical chic» fu il ricevimento organizzato a Manhattan il 14 gennaio 1970 da Felicia Bernstein, moglie del compositore e direttore d’orchestra Leonard, per sostenere la causa del gruppo rivoluzionario marxista-leninista delle Pantere Nere. La serata si svolse nell’attico di tredici stanze che i Bernstein possedevano a Park Avenue, e Wolfe ne scrisse un ampio e caustico resoconto intitolato These Radical Chic Evenings, pubblicato nel mese di giugno sul «New York Magazine». Confluito in un secondo momento nel libro Radical Chic & Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers, il testo è una satira irresistibile della buona coscienza progressista, che oggi come allora non resiste alla tentazione di unire benessere materiale e retorica rivoluzionaria."Article| Tom Wolfe| Statement ..."
