This book was a refreshing change from the introspective thoughtful books I d been reading It had been a while since a book had me glued to the bed all day lying on my right side or lying on my left side with the AC turned on or with the AC turned off wearing my shirt or not wearing my shirt with the book in hand or without the book in hand marveling at a particular turn of phrase or dreaming about juicy jugs and loamy loins a Wolfism This lengthy novel at 700 pages was a page turner to say the least and this wasn t because the plot was wildly inventive or the characters were oh so adorable I turned the pages for Wolfe Oh bloody WolfeReading Tom Wolfe s prose is akin to subjecting your nostrils to heavy grey diesel fumes from the rear end of an ancient goods carrier truck acidic overwhelming but also strangely perversely pleasant if you are inclined towards such guilty pleasures He is a lyrical impressionist He uses unconventional adjectives and innovative phrases which make sense only at the end of a sentence And then too not completely You only have the impression of what he means A very fertile impression I sowed and watered to reap a colorful picture of 1980s America He possesses the elusive ualities of an excellent satirist that of unsparing sharp observation In other words he is the reigning king of the suave smartasses He brandishes a sword from his slovenly sheath every time he introduces a character and cuts him into delicious little literary pieces until all that is left behind is the most shameful of desires and the most hideous of hypocrisies As a result most of his characters seem like arrogant selfish little twits at the outset It is one of Tom Wolfe s great achievements as an author that by the end of the book he had me sympathizing with most of them It s not their fault they are that way We are all hypocritical we are all terrifyingly materialistic We re all the tightest of assholes Our inner worlds are eually fucked up These are the just the ones he chose to write about the news worthy assholes But it is in no outright cynical vein that he writes about these buggers He finds them endearing these cogs and kings scrambling for their own wants using each other shamelessly uid pro uo The New York spirit of bonhomie The Bororo Indians a primitive trible who live along the Vermelho River in the jungles of Brazil believe that there is no such thing as a private self The Bororos regard the mind as an open cavity like a cave or a tunnel or an aracade if you will in which the entire village dwells and the jungle grows In 1969 Jose MR Delgado the eminent Spanish brain physiologist pronounced the Bororos correct For nearly three millennia Western philosophers had viewed the self as something uniue something encased inside each person s skull so to speak Each person is a transitory composite of materials borrowed from the environment said Delgado The important word was transitory and he was talking not about years but about hours He cited experiments in which healthy college students lying on well lit but soundproofed chambers wearing gloves to reduce the sense of touch and translucent goggles to block out specific sights began to hallucinate within hoursThis excerpt merely hints at it and the title pretty much screams it out but The Bonfire Of The Vanities is a lesson in humility it s underlying theme being the lack of control we exercise over our lives irrespective of our wealth intelligence power or success its distilled message being The Man can get to you before you can get your pants on It s an examination of the axes of conflict that run through a society class caste language religion and gender Through its characters it irreverently assesses the different realities we partake of how our prejudices and our beliefs which no matter how we justify it are nothing but a product of our station in society Man is inseparable from his environment says Wolfe in loud clear refreshingly original wordsWe have the protagonist bond trader Sherman McCoy self titled Master Of The Universe star asshole of Pierce and Pierce an exclusively white Wall Street firm He is wedged between a Social X Ray wife whom he despises not so secretly he can drop a ball from the top of her head and hit the floor without encountering anything in between and a Southern Lemon Tart endowed with luscious lips undulating hips and exuberant breasts After a clandestine meeting with his Lemon Tart at the airport he mistakenly drives into the Bronx Mean kids Pimp Roll down its grimy streets at night and men beat their wives with glorious abandon certainly not a place for an eminent upstanding citizen like himself to be loitering around after sundown A stray tire is thrown in the way of his shiny Mercedes and he screeches and skids the car to a halt A fierce scuffle ensues after two African American boys slouch suggestively towards their car As they make their sweet escape from this attempted carjacking so they think his mistress runs down one of the boys None of them bother to inform the police hoping the thing will magically disappear Of course it doesn tThe aftermath is a circus courtroom trial that takes us through the lives and minds of an ensemble cast of characters firmly hitched to the wagon on their individual roads to greater success a seedy alcoholic journalist Peter Fallow looking for the big scoop to revive his sagging career a Bronx assistant district attorney with rippling muscles and an inferiority complex Larry Kramer canny black political leader Reverend Reginald Bacon all of whom gleefully use this incident to further their own selfish interests Through these characters Wolfe writes about a selfish behind the back badmouthing America obsessed with image He cuts through the gloss and grime and reveals the petty minds of rich folk poor folk White folk Black folk Irish folk Jewish folk people who say doesn t people who say don t people who say

Bonfire of the Vanities is not so much one massive pyre but several large and closely situated camp fire like conflagrations Conflagration 1 Master of the Universe bond baron and archetypal WASP Sherman McCoy has reached the top of his particular tree and is enjoying the view from on high while ensuring that his chin is always seen at the right angle It is nice being at the top of things because well lets face it no one wants to be at the bottom The problem with being at the top of the tree is that there is always someone eager to knock you down In Sherman s case his particular tree is on Wall Street which means that there is a pack of suited and suspendered wolves baying at the bottom of the tree and even if they can t knock Sherman down themselves well at least they ll be in line for a tasty treat when he eventually falls And fall Sherman does Although admittedly he does aid and abet his own downward trajectory by stepping out on the thinnest possible limb and has an ill concealed affair with a high class floozy who bangs about than a barn door in a high wind Add into the mix a hit and run after a wrong turning in the Bronx and it is surely game over Sherman Conflagration 2 Hot on his heels in pursuit of justice for the underdog and a uick lay is Jewish Assistant DA Larry Kramer a man whose ego is a lot bigger and brain is sadly a lot smaller than his sternocleidomastoid muscles But that is not going to deter him from making a big name for himself in the Bronx And why should he want to make a name for himself A pay rise so he can continue to provide for his wife and child Nope he s all about bagging himself a date with the girl with the brown lipstick it is little details like this that remind you this book was set in the 1980s Sadly its a case of non cogito ego sum for Mr Kramer Conflagration 3 Pitching in at ringside for the Bronx is Reverend Reginald Bacon black activist money spinner and all round voice for the people He wants many things among them 350000 in tax free money from the Episcopalian church which he is in no hurry to return and justice for poor young Henry Lamb the victim of the hit and run or accurately some careless reversing Bacon is probably the most canny of all the players and while he doesn t get what he wants he comes of lightly toasted and not totally roasted Completing the racially and economically diverse self serving uartet of protagonists is Conflagration 4 Peter Fallow the seedy Brit hack who is shallower than a paddling pool Fallow has lost his literary mojo and allows himself to be manipulated through the coverage of the McCoy case as a way of reinvigorating his career His all time personal highlight is when Arty Ruskin aged socialite and man about town dies at the dinner table of a high end eatery while he s in the process of interviewing him Shallow Fallow refuses to pay the bill scoops the death story as an exclusive and outs the staff as heartless bastards who stepped over the dead man to carry on serving exclusive yuppie mini food Fallows end game is a new blazer and a Pulitzer and he gets both so he s probably the real winner The principle characters in this book are all men The women are either Lemon Tarts slutty blondes mistresses normally a Lemon Tart gold diggers Social X rays ageing thinning over toned skeletons in designer garb who were once Lemon Tarts or the stay at home expanded ass drab house frau Ladies in this respect you may not find a lot to love On the other hand you can watch the gentlemen make fools of themselves which is fairly good value for money On the whole I zipped through this book faster than a yuppie in a Porsche 911 and much like being in a Porsche it was uite a nice ride Slick shiny and satisfying The end was a bit of a cop out though and I am not sure that I approve If I had to summarise this book I d say that this is what American Psycho wants to be when it grows up
