The Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby
New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 1965. First edition of the author's first book that launched New Journalism. Octavo, original white cloth. An excellent near fine copy in a near fine dust jacket with just a touch of shelfwear. Signed by Tom Wolfe with his characteristic signature. A The now famous "Kandy" memorandum enabled Wolfe to recognize that feature journalism--in particular, magazine writing--could achieve added depth and realism by fusing the stylistic features of fiction and the reportorial obligations of journalism to form a "novelistic-sounding"--but still factually constrained--literature. This discovery would impel a receptive Wolfe to further cross traditional journalistic boundaries once the strike was settled at the New York Herald Tribune and he returned to work as a feature writer. "An excellent work by a genius." (Kurt Vonnegut)
