Publisher Description

"An excellent book by a genius”, said Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., of this now-classic exploration of the 1960s from the founder of New Journalism and author of such influential works as The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test and The Bonfire of the Vanities

Tom Wolfe explores the style and culture of the 1960s in this dynamic collection of essays - originally stand-alone pieces, many of which were published in Esquire magazine - written in his unique, free-flowing style and his uncanny ability to call it like he sees it. 

The Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby takes a peek inside the then-rising world of custom cars, examines the life of professional NASCAR driver Junior Johnson, and offers an in-depth account of how Lyndon Johnson tried to copy JFK’s classic style. The work invites the listener inside the outrageous city Las Vegas was becoming, profiles intriguing pop-music figures, and explores a few bars The Beatles were known to frequent. Voiced by award-winning narrator Oliver Wyman, this book brings each character, and Wolfe, back to life.
