NY just lost another of its greats with Tom Wolfe's passing

He had been hospitalised with an infection.

The writer died of an infection in a hospital in NY on Monday, his agent Lynn Nesbit told The Associated Press.

Tom Wolfe, an innovative journalist whose technicolour, wildly punctuated prose brought to life the worlds of California surfers, vehicle customisers, astronauts and Manhattans moneyed status-seekers in works such as The Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby, The Right Stuff and Bonfire Of The Vanities, has died.

Oracle claims Google exfiltrates 1GB of data from Android phones every month
It falls back on using Google Play or Google Maps icon to ensure that it can evade detection. Moreover, the phone doesn't need to have any apps installed, or even a SIM card inserted.

In his reporting, first with The Washington Post, then The New York Herald Tribune, he pioneered a you-are-there, stream-of-consciousness, first-person perspective, which immersed both writer and reader in the narrative.

His first book "The Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby" was a collection of essays originally published in Esquire magazine. He was born and raised in Richmond, Virginia, and went to college at Washington and Lee University and received his PhD from Yale.

The "new journalism" reporter and novelist insisted that the only way to tell a great story was to go out and report it. Throughout his work, Wolfe's marvelous facility with language created several new phrases, including "radical chic" and "the Me decade".

The widening trade dispute between the world's two biggest economies has taken a toll on both sides. ZTE announced last week the USA sanctions would force it to curtail major operations.

In his space-race classic The Right Stuff - the American Book Award victor - he combined the emotional impact of a novel with the factual foundation of hard reporting.

Wolfe's other big-screen adaptation, the 1990 comedy The Bonfire of the Vanities, was based on his 1987 novel about amorality and excess in 1980s New York City.

Wolfe is survived by his wife, Sheila, and two children, Alexandra and Tommy.
