Tom Wolfe - Charlotte Simmons

Tom Wolfe, I am Charlotte Simmons,

This new one from Tom Wolfe is relatively new out in paperback and concerns the life of a very bright girl from the sticks of North Carolina going on to a prestigious college full of ... swine! All of Tom Wolfe's trademark exclamations, clever asides and observation make for something that some people have found very funny and others might find somewhat depressing. There are geeks and jocks, frat boys and preppies, and back-country neandrathals -- and almost none of them have any human appeal whatsoever. But maybe that's funny in itself.
