Tom Wolfe's latest rag, all about Miami of course, Back to Blood, is out today. Get it at Amazon, or go local and hit up Books & Books. They've got it there too. Everybody's been reviewing it, from the New York Times to the New Yorker. And there was even an excerpt in Vanity Fair.

How big of a deal is Back to Blood, and who the bloody hell is Tom Wolfe? Well, kiddos, as Lesley Abravanel, perhaps the Hedda Hopper of Miami, is known to have said, "To have a book written by him, about Miami, I mean that's bigger of a deal than having Jersey Shore filmed here."
