His agent reportedly declined to comment in further detail about her client's death, however, she did refer reporters to an article in the Wall Street Journal, where she was quoted as saying: "He is not just an American icon, but he had a huge global literary reputation".

With a remarkable ear, an acid pen, and unfailing insight into his subjects, Tom Wolfe created a almost peerless body of work and positioned himself as one of the finest and most influential writers of his time.

Wolfe contended that the others contemplated their own intellects and genitals, while he reported back from the real, teeming world.

Wolfe is the author of books like "The New Journalism" and "The Bonfire of the Vanities".

In the collection Wolfe wrote, "The most important literature being written in America today is in nonfiction". John Irving angrily denounced Wolfe by saying, "I can't read him because he's such a bad writer".
