It gave me an opportunity to re-read these two magazine articles, a page snapshot of late s liberal society written in Wolfe's "new journalism /5. And in ""Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers,"" Wolfe travels to San Francisco to survey another meeting-ground between militant minorities and the liberal white establishment.

This time the meeting deals with the newly emerging art of confrontation, as practiced by San Francisco's militant minorities in response to a highly bureaucratized poverty /5().

The phrase radical chic was coined by Tom Wolfe in when Leonard Bernstein gave a party for the Black Panthers at his duplex apartment on Park Avenue. That incongruous scene is re-created here in high fidelity as is another meeting ground between militant minorities and the liberal white establishment, in Radical Chic & Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers/5(7).

And who can go wrong reading a book with "Humor" printed on the jacket. The first story, Radical Chic, recounts Leonard Bernstein's fund raiser for the Black Panthers.

I was expecting cutting social commentary that never really materialized. The second story, the Mau Mauing of the Flak Catchers, was mildly engaging/5. A truly great work by one of our greatest modern writers. I first read this book decades ago, and it stuck in my head so firmly that I decided to give it another read.

It was just as good--maybe better--the second time around. You will recognize the names in "Radical Chic" and you will recognize the types in "Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers."/5.
