In Hooking up Tom Wolfe looked on everything in 2000 from art to teen-age dating and the ‘greats’ of American literature with eagle-eye-tarian candor. In The bonfire of the vanities* nearly a decade before the crash of 2008 he bared the world of hedge funds, junk bonds, and the nouveau riche. And in From Bauhaus to our house it’s architecture, whose emperors have no clothes. The book’s 111 pages are35 years old, but should still be compulsory reading for anyone who wants to know why our cities have grown so graceless, contain so little delight.
