Tom Wolfe
Interviewer: You didn't read The Right Stuff.
Wolfe quotes
The demolition derby is, pure and simple, a form of gladiatorial combat for our times.
Wolfe
A sect, incidentally, is a religion with no political power.




Wolfe Tom quotes
...Las Vegas is the only town in the world whose skyline is made up neither of buildings, like New York, nor of trees, like Wilbraham, Massachusetts, but signs.
Wolfe Tom
He sounded like Jean-François Revel, a French socialist writer who talks about one of the great unexplained phenomena of modern astronomy: namely, that the dark night of fascism is always descending in the United States and yet lands only in Europe.
Tom Wolfe quotes
...like fishing for neon gumballs with a steam shovel in the Funtime arcade.
Tom Wolfe
At certain points, reading [A Man in Full] can even be said to resemble the act of making love to a three-hundred pound woman. Once she gets on top, it's over. Fall in love, or be asphyxiated. So you read and you grab and you even find delight in some of these mounds of material. Yet all the while you resist -- how you resist! -- letting three hundred pounds take you over.
Wolfe Tom quotes
Among other things Jonestown was an example of a definition well known to sociologists of religion: a cult is a religion with no political power.
