Back to Blood
As a police launch speeds across Miamie(tm)s Biscayne Bay e" with officer Nestor Camacho on board e" Tom Wolfe is off and running. Into the feverous landscape of the city, he introduces the Cuban mayor, the black police chief, an ambitious young journalist and his Yale-marinated editor; a psychiatrist who specialises in sex addiction and his Latina nurse by day, mistress by night e" until lately, the love of Nestore(tm)s life; a refined, and oh-so-light-skinned young woman from Haiti and her Creole-spouting, black-gang-banger-styline(tm) little brother; a billionaire porn addict, crack dealers in the e~hoods, e~de-skillede(tm) conceptual artists at the Miami Art Basel Fair, e~spectatorse(tm) at the annual Biscayne Bay regatta looking only for that nighte(tm)s orgy, and a nest of shady Russians.
Based on the same sort of detailed, on-scene, high-energy reporting that powered Tom Wolfee(tm)s previous best-selling novels, The Bonfire of the Vanities and A Man in Full, Back to Blood is another brilliant, spot-on, scrupulous, and often hilarious reckoning with our times.
