okay, i was too flippant with my response. i really don't know wolfe at all. i remember trying to read electric kool-aid around the time i was reading a lot of hunter thompson and various beats, but i just couldn't get into it... but alas, that was about 10 years ago, so i'm probably not qualified to say whether or not he's any good. the reference to irving not liking him comes from the fact that i just read an interview with irving in details magazine, and he mentions disliking wolfe because of all the media-hype around a "feud" between wolfe, mailer, irving and someone else... can't remember. you're right, though, i should give him another shot... :)
