Tom Wolfe, pioneering 'New Journalist,' dead 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.

More recently, Wolfe published "I Am Charlotte Simmons" (2004) and "Back to Blood" (2013).

No further details were immediately available.

Wolfe published a string of nonfiction books beginning with "The Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby" in 1965, a collection of his newspaper and magazine articles in which he experimented with using literary techniques and threw objectivity to the wind. The writer pioneered New Journalism, a 1960s and 1970s literary movement characterized by colorful long-form pieces written in a subjective voice. "He has married his large talent to real money and very few can do that or allow themselves to do that".

Wolfe received numerous awards over the course of his career and not all tongue-in-cheek like the Bad Sex In Fiction Award.

Wolfe's 1979 bestseller "The Right Stuff" focused on the USA astronauts involved in the space race with the Soviet Union.

He is survived by his wife, Sheila, and two children Tommy and Alexandra.
