Synopsis: In this book, his first, Tom Wolfe took a fresh look at the American scene of the early 1960s and zeroed in on the more exotic forms of status-seeking then in vogue from New York to Los Angeles.
In the Twist, bouffant hairdos, stock-car racing and rock concerts Wolfe found a unique American energy. In the title piece he eulogizes the flamboyant kustomized kars California teens constructed with artistic dedication.
"New forces excited the old guard, and Wolfe takes special pleasure in stories of these encounters. Whether in fashion, nightlife, child rearing or art worship, the old guard fought to preserve its status." (B-O-T Editorial Review Board)
Product Description: "An excellent book by a genius," said Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., of this now classic exploration of the 1960s from the founder of new journalism. "This is a book that will be a sharp pleasure to reread years from now, when it will bring back, like a falcon in the sky of memory, a whole world that is currently jetting and jazzing its way somewhere or other."-- Newsweek
