Tom Wolfe novelist and pioneer of New Journalism dies at 87

Tom Wolfe, chronicler and satirist of American culture, has died at age 88, reports AP. Wolfe was known for creating a "New Journalism" and writing bestsellers that defined eras of American life.

Tom Wolfe, the American journalist and author best known for The Bonfire of the Vanities, has died at 87, his agent has said.

Wolfe moved to writing novels in the mid-1980s, penning "The Bonfire of the Vanities". While the book was not universally well regarded by the critical press, it was an enormous financial success.

The writer pioneered New Journalism, a 1960s and 1970s literary movement characterized by colorful long-form pieces written in a subjective voice.
