Back to Blood

A Novel

BACK TO BLOOD opens aboard a police launch speeding across Miami's Biscayne Bay. A Cuban seeking asylum is teetering atop a ship's mast, and it falls to Nestor Camacho, a young Cuban-American cop, to bring him down. His heroic feat gets him ostracized by his own family, and half his neighbors in today's not-so-Little Havana--Hialeah. Based on the same sort of detailed, on-scene, high-energy reporting that distinguished Tom Wolfe's previous bestselling novels, BACK TO BLOOD is a big, panoramic story of an American metropolis--a human comedy involving class, family, wealth, ethnicity, crime, sex, and race.

Back to Blood :

"As if the 45 years from Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test to here hadn't passed, Wolfe is back to some old tricks, including an ever-shifting, sometimes untrustworthy point of view, dizzying pans from one actor to another and rat-a-tat prose....A welcome pleasure from an old master."- Kirkus (Starred Review)

Tom Wolfe is the author of more than a dozen books, among them such bestselling contemporary classics as The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, The Right Stuff, The Bonfire of the Vanities, A Man in Full, and I Am Charlotte Simmons. A native of Richmond, Virginia, he earned his B.A. at Washington and Lee University and a Ph.D. in American studies at Yale. He lives in New York City.
