A Classic!

by TerryD on May 6, 2007

Before Wolfe started writing those dreadful novels to fund his retirement, he was one of the founders of New Journalism and the most insightful commentator on the American scene in the Sixties and Seventies. This collection includes the essays in which he coined the terms "the Me Generation" and "the RIght Stuff" (the latter originaly referred to fighter pilots flying off aircraft carriers into Vietnam). Every college frshman should read "The Intelligent Coed's Guide to America", which puts for the thesis that AMerican academics have never been opressed, so they've had to invent opression to feel relevant. Favorite line: "Fascism is always descending on America, but it only lands in Europe.
