Blurb from the back cover:

Tom Wolfe, the internationally accalimed author of the The Bonfire of the Vanities and A Man in Full, returns to the origins of his success with his first collection of essays and short fiction for twenty years.

Hooking Up ranges all over the modern world, from an update on the sexual manners and more of teenagers to an investigation of the fundemental ways in which our lives and self-perceptions have changed living as we do in a modern world of genetic engineering and neurosciencec. There are pieces on 'stong TV' as well as forecasts of radical changes sweeping the world of the arts. A glorious, questioning, memorable book, Hooking Up shows Tom Wolfe at the very top of his form.

I am offering this book up initially as a bookring as I have a huge Mt TBR.

Received today - thanks sarahbear. I have Bonfire of the Vanities on the TBR pile but this looks somewhat less intimidating!

Journal Entry 5 by hunnyb from Sydney, New South Wales Australia on Tuesday, March 14, 2006
A very varied collection of essays and a novella. Wolfe is evidently a very accomplished writer but some of the things just went over my head. For example, the Roccoco Marxists essay to me was just "what the!?" The novella definitely brought up some interesting issues however with frightening insights into human nature. I'm sending this onto LizzieM now - thanks sarahbear for sharing :)

Found the book next to a Subway restaurant in Adelaide. The book will be travelling with me to New Zealand next month where I plan on releasing it into the wild.
