  • "A big, panoramic story of the new America, Tom Wolfe's 'Back to Blood' is another scrupulous, and often hilarious, reckoning with our times."@en
  • "Der vielfach preisgekrönte Schriftsteller (American Book Award etc.) war international längst als Sachbuchautor berühmt, ehe er - schon 56 Jahre alt - mit 'Fegefeuer der Eitelkeiten' (1987) seinen ersten Roman vorlegte, der auf Anhieb zum Weltbestseller und von Brian de Palma mit Tom Hanks verfilmt wurde. Es folgten 1998 sein zweiter Roman 'Ein ganzer Kerl', mit 'Hooking Up' eine Sammlung von Essays und Erzählprosa (2001) und 2005 sein dritter Roman 'Ich bin Charlotte Simmons'. Der Autor lebt in New York."
  • "As a police launch speeds across Miami's Biscayne Bay--with our hero, Officer Nestor Camacho, on board, readers run headlong into Miami, the only city in the world where people from a different country with a different language and a different culture have taken over at the ballot box."@en
  • "Contemporary fiction. As the police boat speeds across Miami's Biscayne Bay, the scene is set for Officer Nestor Camacho's great moment of heroism. Except that in this feverous melting pot of a city, where the multicultural masses just won't melt, one act of heroism can be seen as utter betrayal of his Cuban roots. As Nestor's world disintegrates his family disown him, he can't get a Cuban coffee without ugly stares, and his girlfriend Magdalena leaves him for her sex-addiction psychiatrist boss his quest to right the wrongs brings him into contact with the full panorama of modern Miami. The Yale-marinated journalist, conflicted black police chief, Haitian professor whose ambitions to be French are thwarted by his Creole-spouting son, clueless baying art-buyers and Anglo billionaire porn addict all come up for scrutiny in Tom Wolfe's high-energy, scrupulous and hilarious reckoning with our times."
  • "A colorful cast of residents and visitors to Miami go about their daily activities, both legal and illegal. This is a big, panoramic story of the new America, as told by the author of the way we live now. The police launch speeds across Miami's Biscayne Bay with officer Nestor Camacho on board. Into the feverous landscape of the only city in the world where people from a different country with a different language and a different culture have taken over at the ballot box. This melting pot is full of hard cases who just won't melt, damn it. He introduces the Cuban mayor, the black police chief, a wanna-go-muckraking young journalist and his Yale-marinated editor of the Miami Herald, both WASPs who went to Yale; an Anglo sex-addiction psychiatrist and his lovely Latina nurse Magdalena by day, loin lock by night (until lately), and his star patient, a porn-addicted billionaire; a status-addled Haitian professor who thinks he's really French and wants his pale-skinned daughter, Ghislaine, to "pass" for white (she is the love of Nestor's life); and her Creole-spouting, black-gang-banger-stylin' little brother; as well as crack dealers in the 'hoods. Then there are the clueless collectors who "See it! Like it! Buy it!", spending tens of millions per minute on de-skilled art at the Miami Art Basel Fair; black drug dealers colliding with Cuban cops; "spectators" at the annual Columbus Day Biscayne Bay Regatta looking only for that night's annual après-race orgy; yenta-heavy ex-New Yorkers at an "Active Adult" condo, and a nest of shady Russians."

  • "Soll der kubanische Bürgermeister ihn suspendieren oder mit Orden schmücken? Versaut ihm dieser Idiot die Wiederwahl? Genüsslich und packend taucht Tom Wolfe ein in die verrückteste Stadt Amerikas: Miami, wo die Spanisch sprechenden Kubaner inzwischen die Mehrheit, aber die Weissen immer noch das Geld haben. Wo die Jugend am Strand den ewigen Spass und die Rentner beim Schönheitschirurgen das ewige Leben suchen. Wo die Blutlinien mitten durch den amerikanischen Traum verlaufen. Tom Wolfe, 1931 in Richmond, Virginia, geboren, arbeitete nach seiner Promotion in Amerikanistik als Reporter u.a. für 'The Washington Post', 'New York Herald Tribune', 'Esquire' und 'Harper's'. In den 60er Jahren gehörte er mit Truman Capote, Norman Mailer und Gay Talese zu den Gründern des 'New Journalism'.-"
  • "Das Fegefeuer der Eitelkeiten für das 21. Jahrhundert Clash of Cultures unter karibischer Sonne: eine brillante und bissige Satire auf den menschlichen Umgang mit gesellschaftlicher Realität. Die Freiheit ist nur 20 Meter entfernt für den kubanischen Flüchtling, der sich auf den Mast einer Luxusjacht vor Miami geflüchtet hat. Aber dann wird er vor den Augen von Millionen Fernsehzuschauern in einer spektakulären Aktion live verhaftet. Und das ausgerechnet vom netten Nestor, einem Polizisten mit kubanischen Wurzeln, der unter den chauvinistischen Sprüchen seiner weissen Vorgesetzten leidet. Die ganze Stadt ist in zwei Lager gespalten: Für seine Familie und Landsleute ist Nestor ein Verräter, für die Weissen ein Held und Musteramerikaner.-"
