Tom Wolfe

Author Tom Wolfe will always be remembered for The Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby and his white suits. One summer while in college I read all of the books that he’d written up to that point and loved them all. Thank you for the wonderful stories and style inspiration, Mr. Wolfe.

  • At the last moment, the graduation speaker for my niece’s graduation from Chapin was cancelled and Tom Wolfe replaced her. I had read most of his books and was very excited. He showed up in his 3 piece white suit and gave a wonderful, witty and inspirational talk. I’m going to reread some of my favorites of his as well.

  • That’s great story, Kathy. We are a Chapin family and I’m sorry we missed hearing him speak.

  • Preston, can you believe it was supposed to be RBG that year too and she couldn’t make it!

  • NO! That is ironic…
