The Bonfire of The Vanities
704 pages; Picador
What do you get when a philandering wall Street WASP accidentally hits a young black man with his Mercedes somewhere in the Bronx? In Wolfe's hands, you get a hilariously astute slice of social commentary—of gilded age excess, ego and maneuvering—with precious few innocents in sight. Irresistible. The Dylan's Candy bar of novels.
