The Bonfire Of The Vanities, Tom Wolfe
Sherman McCoy, Wall Street bond trader with a salary like a telephone number...Peter Fallow, expatriate Fleet Street gossip writer whose price is a free lunch...Larry Kramer, assistant DA with a lustful eye on the juror wearing brown lipstick...The Reverend Reggie Bacon, charismatic ghetto warlord, con man, and power in the streets...
The Bonfire of the Vanities welds their stories together on a night in the Bronx when a $48,000 Mercedes hits a street it shouldn't have been near with a girl in its tan leather bucket seat who shouldn't have been there at all. The next day a young black accident victim is in hospital in a coma and Sherman McCoy has booked himself a one-way ticket to disaster.
