Tom Wolfe (1931). This book, Bonfire of the Vanities, was judged by a Time Magazine panel of experts as one of the 10 greatest novels of the last quarter century.The hero, Sherman McCoy, a Park Avenue bond trader and Master of the Universe gets caught up in a maelstrom of class and cultural warfare as a result of a freak accident. Among the character who emnerge in this drama is the Right Reverend Bacon, a race mongering 'jive turkey' the likes of which are now,almost twenty years after the publication of this book, all too familiar to the Ameerican Public. Of course this novel was made into a movie starring Tom Hanks as Sherman and it was a fairly faithful recreation of the novel.Signed copies of Bonfires are very much sought after. This offering is a book in pristine condition with a fully intact dust jacket. The book is First Edition, fourth printing and was published and copyrighted in 1987 by Farrar Strauss Griroux. The book is signed To -(Name electronically obscured in the image seen on the internet only) Tom Wolfe, n.p,n.d. but circa late 1980's.
