Tom Wolfe, an early practitioner of “new journalism," has died at the age of 88. Wolfe captured the mood and culture of America across five decades with books including “The Bonfire of the Vanities,” “The Right Stuff,” and “The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test.” According to his agent, Lynn Nesbit, Wolfe died on Monday of an unspecified infection in a New York City hospital. Wolfe’s trademark was the white suit, often accessorized with a white hat and two-tone shoes. He wasn't shy to admit that he enjoyed the attention they brought him. Wolfe lived in New York with his wife, Sheila. He had two children.
