An innovative novelist and journalist has passed away. Tom Wolfe was known for his work in "The Right Stuff," "The Bonfire of the Vanities," and "The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test."
Wolfe passed away in a Manhattan hospital on Monday, May 14. He was 87 years old.
According to Wolfe's agent, Lynn Nesbit, Wolfe died from an infection which originally hospitalized him.
In 1962, Wolfe began working as a journalist for the New York Herald Tribune, according to the New York Times.
He was one of the first journalists to implement literacy practices to his work. This style later was called the New Journalism which is a style in reporting that the writer absorbs themselves into the story.
“He is probably the most skillful writer in America — I mean by that he can do more things with words than anyone else," said William F. Buckley, Jr.
