Radical-ly Chic Collection for NYPL

tomwolfeNew York Public Library has acquired author Tom Wolfe’s archive, including materials for his novels, letters from friends Hunter S. Thompson, William F. Buckley and Gay Talese, works of journalism, and interviews with “historically significant figures like the test pilot Chuck Yeager.” Library president Anthony W. Marx called the archive “amazing”, saying: “His work touches on so much of the sociology of the city. Now this acquisition makes all of his material public.” The collection will probably be opened to researchers by next summer. Read the entire NYT article here and check the EPL catalog for works by Mr. Wolfe.
