Regular price $25.00

1987 hardcover edition Bonfire Of The Vanities By Tom Wolfe. The dust jacket shows wear around the edges with only a few very small tears and creases.

There aren't any signs of inscriptions, marginalization or dog-eared pages.

The Bonfire of the Vanities is a satirical novel about ambition, racism, social class, politics, and greed in 1980s New York City. It is often banned due to its  portrayal of black kids, who walked with a loping gait in the book which Wolfe described as a “pimp roll,” and for its suggestion of an unbridgeable racial divide in New York City. Wolfe's satirical novel which elaborated on the time period and living in the city is a must-have if you collect banned books.
