Overview

The Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby by Tom Wolfe

"An excellent book by a genius," said Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., of this now classic exploration of the 1960s from the founder of new journalism.

"This is a book that will be a sharp pleasure to reread years from now, when it will bring back, like a falcon in the sky of memory, a whole world that is currently jetting and jazzing its way somewhere or other."—Newsweek

In his first book, The Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby (1965) Wolfe introduces us to the sixties, to extravagant new styles of life that had nothing to do with the "elite" culture of the past.

Wolfe is one of the best social commentators in the US. He is funny, satirical and insightful. These articles from the late 1950s and early 1960s are at their best when they capture subcultures: custom car builders and stock car racers. Less interesting are the articles about celebrities or wealthy individuals who have passed into obscurity.
