Tom Wolfe's "Back to Blood"

Tom Wolfe is working on a book about the contemporary American immigrant experience, set in Miami. I hadn't heard too much more about it beyond what was reported in this Wikipedia page devoted to the book, but for months it has been reporting that the book is due out this year.

It's mid-November and I began to wonder why I had heard so little about this novel--say what you will about the man and his writing (I'm personally a big fan of his non-fiction), but a Tom Wolfe book does not quietly land on the shelves. Nor did it receive mention on this fairly comprehensive list of then-forthcoming 2009 titles, assembled by the The Millions blog.

Well, perhaps not surprisingly, it turns out that the Wikipedia page is wrong. The Pittsburgh Post Gazette reported last week that Little, Brown & Co. (not FSG) plans to publish the book in Fall 2010. So there's that.

Here is an excerpt of the Post Gazette article:
"You have people from another country with a different language and a very different culture coming into Miami and dominating it politically through the voting machine," Mr. Wolfe said. "Only in America could people from a foreign country with a foreign language and foreign culture establish themselves so quickly in 30 years."

I am extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your weblog.
Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself?
Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it's rare to see a nice blog like this one these days.
