Product description


"Tom Wolfe...remains The Dude when it comes to surveying the crazed, bracing absurdities of our national life… Back to Blood is marked by both Wolfe’s stylistic freneticim and his formidable reportorial gifts… Beginning his ninth decade, Tom Wolfe has brio to burn." (Douglas Kennedy The Times)

"If this novel were rushed into A&E, it would immediately be put under heavy sedatipm." (Peter Kemp Sunday Times)

"Back to Blood dazzles so much that you might want to read it through dark glasses. In terms of scale, setting and purpose, we are very much back in Bonfire." (Simon O’Hagan Independent on Sunday)

"Tom Wolfe returns with a thunderous thwack, fizzing outrageously at the age of 81 with a slipstreamed comet of a novel… All Human Life is Here!... It’s even better than his great hit The Bonfire of the Vanities. Unmissable stuff." (Tom Adair Scotsman)

"This is an exhilarating novel… The satire is scalpel-like and very funny." (Wynn Wheldon Spectator)

Book Description

Tom Wolfe is back, with his most brilliant novel since The Bonfire of the Vanities, jettisoning us into the turbulent heart of America’s racial vortex: Miami.
