Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
In Hooking Up, Tom Wolfe ranges from coast to coast observing "the lurid carnival actually taking place in the mightiest country on earth in the year 2000." From teenage sexual manners and mores to fundamental changes in the way human beings now regard themselves thanks to the hot new fields of genetics and neuroscience; from his legendary profile of William Shawn, editor of The New Yorker, to a remarkable portrait of Bob Noyce, the man who invented Silicon Valley, Tom Wolfe the master of reportage and satire returns in vintage form.

Review:
"...Wolfe is not really a writer to look to for conclusions....[H]e clumsily melds diverse bodies of European philosophical thought into a single target which is easier to hit. Given that he constantly stresses the importance of facts..., he does not seem to have tried to grapple with the facts of these complex fields. Any current of thought with a European source is an enemy here, to set beside New York and its institutions: the New Yorker, the New York Review of Books, the Ivy League universities, and so on."

Paul Quinn, Times Literary Supplement, 11/24/2000
