RIP, Tom Wolfe.

Tom Wolfe was 87, and one of the best writers of my time. Everybody’s going to be talking about The Right Stuff or his later works, but I always had a fondness for From Bauhaus to Our House. Wolfe made modern architecture fascinating; or, rather, he helped people understand why it was fascinating.  Which is what nonfiction is supposed to do.

My prayers and good wishes to his family and loved ones.
