Back to Blood by Tom Wolfe – Book Summary
I read my 1st Tom Wolfe novel when I had just turned 17 and now 10 years later, the same author continues to thrill me his unique blend of writing which is a mixture of incisive journalistic skill and an amazing sense of humor. Admittedly, his last book left quite a bit to be desired but when I heard the news that Back to Blood by Tom Wolfe was going to be released later this month, boy I knew I had to get my hands on an advance review copy of this!
Luckily though, I did manage this through a special friend of mine and to put it in a short way, Back to Blood is one hell of a snappy read that’s filled with a host of interesting characters. It has a fast paced plot and with Wolfe’s unique bright writing style, we have a winner on our hands.
Below is a short excerpt and summary of this new book by Tom Wolfe:
“As a police launch speeds across Miami’s Biscayne Bay-with officer Nestor Camacho on board-Tom Wolfe is off and running.
Into the feverous landscape of the city, he introduces the Cuban mayor, the black police chief, a wanna-go-muckraking young journalist and his Yale-marinated editor; an Anglo sex-addiction psychiatrist and his Latina nurse by day, loin lock by night-until lately, the love of Nestor’s life; a refined, and oh-so-light-skinned young woman from Haiti and her Creole-spouting, black-gang-banger-stylin’ little brother; a billionaire porn addict, crack dealers in the ‘hoods, “de-skilled” conceptual artists at the Miami Art Basel Fair, “spectators” at the annual Biscayne Bay regatta looking only for that night’s orgy, yenta-heavy ex-New Yorkers at an “Active Adult” condo, and a nest of shady Russians.
Based on the same sort of detailed, on-scene, high-energy reporting that powered Tom Wolfe’s previous bestselling novels, Back to Blood by Tom Wolfe is another brilliant, spot-on, scrupulous, and often hilarious reckoning with our times…”
This is a comeback sort for Tom Wolfe considering that his last book was published way back in 2004 (which incidentally was panned by critics) but I’m pretty confident that Back to Blood is a return to form for Wolfe.
