Read full description of the books Le Bûcher des vanités:

Sherman McCoy mène une vie luxueuse entre Wall Street, dont il est l'un des jeunes lions, et Park Avenue. Un soir, revenant de l'aéroport avec sa maîtresse, il rate la sortie de l'autoroute, et se perd dans le Bronx. Au moment où il croit enfin pouvoir échapper à ce quartier de tous les dangers, deux jeunes Noirs s'avancent, menaçants, vers sa Mercedes...
Le couple parvient à s'enfuir, mais écrase l'un des deux hommes. Pour Sherman McCoy, c'est le début de la chute. Sa vie affective et professionnelle est pulvérisée, et l'univers dont il se croyait le maître flambe sur le bûcher de toutes les vanités. Graduellement, inexorablement, l'étau se resserre, sans que l'on sache, jusqu'aux toutes dernières pages, comment le cauchemar se terminera.

Read information about the author

Ebook Le Bûcher des vanités read Online! Wolfe was educated at Washington and Lee Universities and also at Yale, where he received a PhD in American studies.

Tom Wolfe spent his early days as a Washington Post beat reporter, where his free-association, onomatopoetic style would later become the trademark of New Journalism. In books such as The Electric Koolaid Acid Test, The Right Stuff, and The Bonfire of the Vanities, Wolfe delves into the inner workings of the mind, writing about the unconscious decisions people make in their lives. His attention to eccentricities of human behavior and language and to questions of social status are considered unparalleled in the American literary canon.


He is one of the founders of the New Journalism movement of the 1960s and 1970s.

Tom Wolfe is also famous for coining and defining the term fiction-absolute .
