Tom Wolfe's A Man in Full is a brilliantly written, intimate portrait of New York City in the late 1960s. Wolfe paints a vivid and complex picture of the city's inhabitants, from the privileged to the down-and-out, from the artists to the businessmen, from the young and the old. He captures the excitement and turmoil of a time when New York was beginning to reinvent itself and when its inhabitants were forging their own identities.; 8vo; 742 pages; MR.
