The Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby by Tom Wolfe
FIRST PAPERBACK PRINTING  POCKET BOOKS / CARDINAL
Rare 1st paperback printing of Wolfe's 1965 debut in very good condition.
Cover shows wear, some mild creasing and a hint of discoloration. Binding is tight and despite tanning, pages read beautifully.
"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
In his first book, The Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby (1965) Wolfe introduces us to the sixties, to extravagant new styles of life that had nothing to do with the "elite" culture of the past.
