Pioneering Author Tom Wolfe Dead at 88
Tom Wolfe, who authored dozens of articles and books spanning more than half a century, died in Manhattan Monday. The dapper Wolfe, known for his signature white suit, was one of the founders of the so-called New Journalism movement. An astute social critic, Wolfe wrote with flair about a wide range of topics. His novel 'The Right Stuff,' about the U.S. space program, was turned into an acclaimed 1983 movie starring Ed Harris, and won four Oscars. Wolfe was 88 years old.
