Publisher Description

A big, panoramic story of the new America, as told by our master chronicler of the way we live now.

As a police launch speeds across Miami's Biscayne Bay-with officer Nestor Camacho on board-Tom Wolfe is off and running. Into the feverous landscape of the city, he introduces the Cuban mayor, the black police chief, a wanna-go-muckraking young journalist and his Yale-marinated editor; an Anglo sex-addiction psychiatrist and his Latina nurse by day, loin lock by night-until lately, the love of Nestor's life; a refined, and oh-so-light-skinned young woman from Haiti and her Creole-spouting, black-gang-banger-stylin' little brother; a billionaire porn addict, crack dealers in the 'hoods, "de-skilled" conceptual artists at the Miami Art Basel Fair, "spectators" at the annual Biscayne Bay regatta looking only for that night's orgy, yenta-heavy ex-New Yorkers at an "Active Adult" condo, and a nest of shady Russians. Based on the same sort of detailed, on-scene, high-energy reporting that powered Tom Wolfe's previous bestselling novels, BACK TO BLOOD is another brilliant, spot-on, scrupulous, and often hilarious reckoning with our times.

Heck ah ,

Wow! Incredibly disappointing.

Can't believe this was written by Tom Wolfe. Reads like something ghost written (badly) by someone else attempting to capture Wolfe's famous kinetic prose. Didn't care at all about any of the characters, didn't capture anything remotely interesting or sexy about Miami and its citizens. I'm a huge fan of Wolfe and I must be one of the only readers who really enjoyed "I Am Charlotte Simmons" but this was a crushing disappointment. I think I'm in a bit of shock, it was that bad.
