LIBERALISM AND ITS EFFECTS

by blyfox on Oct 14, 2007

First of all, this is Wolfe. Normally that would be enough, but a long time has passed and many may never have heard of him. This is a good introduction. It all takes place in '60's San Francisco and New York. It is the text that Leonard Bernstein never recovered from. The second part, about the San Francisco mau-mau, is one of the more hilarious accounts you'll ever come across. It nails at once the SF Liberal, Bureaucrat, and Radical. Fools all. I know, because I was "present at the creation." Wolfe doesn't bang on pipes, he merely does what he always does - describe the situation. If anything, his "new journalism" style does the work of pinning tails on these donkeys. I always envy those who are just discovering Tom Wolfe. I can re-savor, but it's just not the same as that first astounding blast of foot-stomping, joyous prose.
