The Bonfire of the Vanities: A Novel by Tom Wolfe

Sherman McCoy, the central figure of Tom Wolfes first novel, is a young investment banker with a fourteen-room apartment in Manhattan. When he is involved in a freak accident in the Bronx, prosecutors, politicians, the press, the police, the clergy, and assorted hustlers high and low close in on him, licking their chops and giving us a gargantuan helping of the human comedy, of New York in the 1980s, a city boiling over with racial and ethnic hostilities and burning with the itch to Grab It Now. Wolfes novel is a big, panoramic story of the metropolis that reinforces the authors reputation as the foremost chronicler of the way we live in America.
