Postscript: Tom Wolfe's Kansas City Talk

Really great read for literary types who read this blog regarding a journalist/novelist who managed to shake up the status quo, even in Kansas City. Checkit:

When Tom Wolfe, America's Great Conservative Author, Came to Kansas City - The Sentinel

Author Tom Wolfe, who died yesterday in New York City, came to Kansas City some 40 years ago and turned the local art community on its head. Wolfe had the effrontery to speak to a midwest gathering of the Association of Art Critics about art criticism, a subject he had delightfully skewered in his then recent book, The Painted Word.

I can't stop thinking about when Cashill brought Holocaust Denier David Erving to Kansas City for the book signing of "Hitler And I"?

Who cares? A much better writer, James Ellroy, used to LIVE IN KANSAS CITY and no one gave a shit.
