Radical Chic and Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers | [Tom Wolfe]

Radical Chic and Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers

In "Radical Chic", Wolfe focuses primarily on one symbolic event: a gathering of the politically correct at Leonard Bernstein’s duplex apartment on Park Avenue to meet spokesmen of the Black Panther Party. He re-creates the incongruous scene - and its astonishing repercussions - with high fidelity. In the companion essay, Wolfe travels west to San Francisco to survey another meeting-ground between militant minorities and the liberal white establishment. "Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers" deals with the newly emerging art of confrontation, as practiced by San Francisco’s militant minorities.

    What did you love best about Radical Chic and Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers?

    This brilliantly told piece of history is one that no doubt many power people hope you'll never find out about. Wolfe's writing is so rich with humor and insight, and the narration is so good, you'll think you're watching a play.
