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.
