1 Wolfe, Tom Hooking Up
New York Farrar Straus and Company 2000 First Edition Cloth Fine Very Good+ Signed by Author
This is a really nice copy of Tom Wolfe's Hooking Up. The book is a first edition and first printing and is in very fine condition. No bumped corners, no spots or stains. The volume is inscribed by Tom Wolfe on the ffep (First Free Endpaper) and of course, it is written in his incredibly flamboyant handwriting. It says "to Joel Baskin" and then it is signed by Mr. Wolfe. The dustjacket shows some slight soiling to the front panel and a couple of spots of shelf-wear. There is a very small chip to the rear top left panel and a bit of the crease where the back panel becomes the back inner flap shows just a bit. It is just a little white showing through at the curve that goes into the book itself. It does not detract. The dustjacket is not price-clipped and this is certainly a collectible copy of another work from the wild Tom Wolfe. Also included within the book is 'Ambush at Fort Bragg' a novella. Tom Wolfe's social commentary on the way we now relate to each other is both penetrating and funny. This is 'Hooking Up'. Wolfe ranges from coast to coast, chronicling everything from the sexual manners and mores of teenagers to fundamental changes in the way human beings now regard themselves. This is a most interesting and unusual book. It's really more like two books. Up to page 171, the social essay fascinates. From page 173 to 293 is the wonderful novella. A most interesting signed First edition. We are pleased to send pictures on request.

2 Wolfe, Tom I am Charlotte Simmons
New York Farrar Straus and Company 2004 First Edition Cloth Fine Fine Signed by Author
From the author of Bonfire of the Vanities comes this new and very controversial novel. The book has caused a stir in many quarters because of its dealing with contemporary college life and its viewpoint on contemporary students. This book is brand new and it has never been read. It is in as new condition and it is signed directly on the title page by Tom Wolfe with his well known flourish. The story of Charlotte Simmons is a story of a beautiful, brilliant, student who goes to a top university at which the students are all upper-crust and wealthy. Charlotte is a wide-eyed, bookish freshman from a strict, devout, poor, and poorly educated family in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Charlotte learns, to her growing dismay, that for these rich kids of Dupont University college is about sex, drugs, and alchohol. This environment trumps her towering academic ambitions every time. This is a fantastic novel from Tom Wolfe who is certainly one of our finest contemprary novelists. We are pleased to send pictures on request.
