Editorial Review

A writer like Tom Wolfe almost definitely shouldn’t have to stage a comeback, but there will doubtless be reviewers of his new novel, Returned to Blood, who describe it that way. In Wolfe's occupation of significant books, his closing novel, printed in 2004, was thought to be by way of many to be a stumble–however Returned to Blood is a return to type, a work that solidifies Wolfe’s stature as one of the crucial perfect. The usage of his incisive journalistic abilities, his aptitude for the cinematic moment, and his giggle-out-loud sense of humor, Wolfe takes the disparate varieties in and round Miami to create a tapestry of memorable scenes and characters. The result is exciting, revealing, and perhaps even bigger than the sum of its components. This can be a book as a way to do for Miami what Wolfe's mega-hit The Bonfire of the Vanities did for New York. —Chris Schluep
