I love this rollicking review of Tom Wolfe’s new novel, I Am Charlotte Simmons. As background, he talks about Wolfe’s earlier exhortations to American novelists: “‘A battalion, a brigade of Zolas’ is what we need, Wolfe evangelized, then put on his dress-white uniform, screwed on his bayonet, and went screaming into the hills. ”
