Not to be confused with Thomas Wolfe.

Tom Wolfe is a conservative author who has written such books as The Right Stuff and The Bonfire of the Vanities.

He was one of the pioneers of the New Journalism movement in the 1960s which attracted such writers as Ken Kesey and Hunter S. Thompson.

In The Painted Word, Wolfe describe the disintegration of the fine arts into rhetorical rubbish made to fit the ideology of fashionable critics like Clement Greenberg, Harold Rosenberg, and Leo Steinberg. His book was savaged by the PC art establishment. In Radical Chic & Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers, Wolfe skewers limousine liberals for celebrating America-hating radicals.
