His notable works include "The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test", "The Right Stuff", "The Last American Hero", and "The Bonfire of the Vanities", the last three of which were adapted into movies.

Reports suggest he was battling an infection and pneumonia in hospital when he died.

The main principle is based Wolfe of the "new journalism" - the documentary description of events using artistic techniques that are usually used when writing novels, allowing you to influence the reader not only intellectually, but also emotionally.

Known as a natty dresser in his signature white three-piece suits and spectator shoes, Wolfe exhibited a bon vivant, man-about-town image, even though his roots traced to a Southern middle-class upbringing. As fate would have it, Wolfe graces the cover of our summer issue-in the mail as I type-wherein we have one of the last interviews that he ever gave.

"They called my brilliant manuscript "journalistic" and 'reactionary, ' which means I must go through with a blue pencil and strike out all the laughs and anti-Red passages and slip in a little liberal merde, so to speak, just to sweeten it".

"He knows everything, " novelist Kurt Vonnegut once wrote of Wolfe.

Wolfe's other books include The Pump House Gang, Radical Chic & Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers, The Painted Word and Mauve Gloves & Madmen, Clutter & Vine, which includes his well-known essay about the Me Decade.

In 1979, he published his bestseller "The Right Stuff" about Project Mercury astronauts in the NASA space program and the space race between the United States and the Soviet Union. Since childhood, Tom Wolfe dreamed of becoming a writer. He was 88 years old. "Tom Wolfe leaves no prisoners in his comedy", said critics of New York Times, written by Christopher Lehmann-Haupt. He is survived by his wife Sheila and son Tommy.
