Wolfe-A-Palooza!

My post about seeing Tom Wolfe speak in mid-November in San Francisco inspired Greg, a student at North Carolina State University to attend Wolfe’s on-campus speech, as his tour to promote I Am Charlotte Simmons continues to cross the country–and Greg offers a very detailed report himself.

Greg notes that Wolfe referenced Nietzsche during the Q&A at NCSU, which sounds like he was riffing on some of the material he had collected in 2001’s Hooking Up, especially his essay, “Sorry, But Your Soul Just Died“, the same one that “Dieter” misinterpreted so fatefully.
