✋Alzi la mano chi ha letto Tom Wolfe (da non confondersi con Thomas Wolfe, altro grande autore statunitense). Chi ancora non conosce questa fondamentale e contraddittoria figura della letteratura americana contemporanea può approfittare della ripubblicazione di questo approfondimento di Marco Denti apparso sul numero 22 di PULP Libri, novembre-dicembre 1999. Ne è passata di acqua sotto ai ponti! · · «Per me la grande gioia dello scrivere è lo scoprire. Ho cominciato come giornalista. Continuo ad amare l’idea di avventurarmi fuori e poi scrivere di qualcosa che non conosco. Quando ho scritto II falò della vanitàho cercato come reporter in aree di cui non conoscevo assolutamente nulla, il South Bronx, Wall Street e il sistema giudiziario di New York. È stato eccitante. È successo lo stesso per Un uomo vero: non sapevo praticamente nulla dei sistemi bancari o della working classodierna di cui parlo nel romanzo ed è stato estremamente affascinante documentarmi. È una parte del mio lavoro che ancora mi attrae con forza. La maggior parte degli scrittori dice di scrivere qualcosa di cui si conosce. Non c’è niente di male, ma c’è sempre qualcosa di limitante nel mettere una sorta di recinto attorno a chi sta scrivendo». · · Leggete il resto sul sito! #PULPLibri #tomwolfe #newjournalism #bonfireofthevanities #electrickoolaidacidtest #letteraturaamericana #archivio #throwbacksaturday #leggere #lettureconsigliate #bookstagram #instabook

TbF: Tom Wolfe could not only satirize the foibles of “the upper crust” in prose, he was quite adept at drawing them as well. This eloquently-captioned sketch—Off to a Better Place—is from “In Our Time” a volume of Wolfe’s drawings published in 1980 by Farrah Straus Giroux. #talentinspades #multifacetedman #tomwolfe

"Sitting in my bedroom. You know I'm spinning. Haven't got much headroom. But I'm only living. When I'm like this. I can only just say. Why did you get me into this shit. Help me get out of it now. I don't know what you will allow. You've got me... Stoned. Sitting in my bedroom spinning. Stoned, yeah. You've got me stoned. Sitting in my bedroom spinning. Stoned, yeah." 🌌 Day 20 of my July #grimdragon challenge: Snoochie Boochies! I fucking love Kevin Smith films! There's just something so nostalgic & genuine & raw & hilarious & compulsively watchable about them! I think he is his own unique form of genius. FIGHT ME! Ahh. The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test. This was one hell of a special book for me in high school! I went through a pretty big hippie phase back in the day. Also revolutions & road trips & cults OH MY! I was especially fascinated by Ken Kesey being a writer (One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest) & then how he became a countercultural icon. This book was one of the early instances of the New Journalism style of writing. Non-fiction that reads like fiction, essentially.

“The framework of American narcissism—from the permission to unload personal demons in public to the rise of the selfie—has its roots in Jann Wenner’s pioneering magazine making. In the age of social media, calculated authenticity is the coin of the realm. And Rolling Stone helped define what authenticity meant, and well after it became decoupled from the 1960s idealisms that birthed it.” Joe Hagen @aaknopf Sticky Fingers #booksofinstagram #booksofig #igreads #igbooks #bookstagram #books #rollingstonemagazine 2018:42 ......................... “Any of the big historical events of the Sixties are overshadowed by what young people did. And they did it because they had money. For the first time in the history of man, young people had the money, the personal freedom and the free time to build monuments and pleasure palaces to their own tastes.” #TomWolfe 1987 ................... “It seems entirely reasonable to think that every now and then the energy of a whole generation comes to a head in a long fine flash, for reasons that nobody really understands at the time—and which never explain, in retrospect, what actually happened.” The Wisdom, Hunter S. Thompson, 1971 ................. “At one time, holding Rolling Stone was like holding a piece of hot shrapnel from the cultural explosion of the 1960s while it still glowed with feeling and meaning.” Joe Hagen

"each present hour will pass away. Son, son, you have been mad and drunken, furious and wild, filled with hatred and despair, and all the dark confusions of the soul - but so have we. You found the earth too great for your one life, you found your brain and sinew smaller than the hunger and desire that fed on them - but it has been this way with all men. You have stumbled on in darkness, you have been pulled in opposite directions, you have faltered, you have missed the way, but, child, this is the chronicle of the earth. And now, because you have known madness and despair, and because you will grow desperate again before you come to evening, we who have stormed the ramparts of the furious earth and been hurled back, we who have been maddened by the unknowable and bitter mystery of love, we who have hungered after fame and savored all of life, the tumult, pain, and frenzy, and now sit quietly by our windows watching all that henceforth never more shall touch us - we call upon you to take heart, for we can swear to you that these things pass." -Tom Wolfe- #tomwolfe #literature #americanliterature #beatniks #beatgeneration #electrickoolaidacidtest #youcantgohome
