Good On Tom Wolfe

His new novel, I Am Charlotte

Simmons, is in bookstores today, and he

was on the Today Show this morning promoting it. It’s a novel about college life,

especially the sexual bacchanal there today. Good on him for having the guts to say that sexual purity is a big

deal. He said further (and I paraphrase): “A generation ago, the worst slut

would not admit to it, but today, a girl who is still a virgin will pretend

she’s sexually experienced. That’s not natural.” I’m going to stop at

Borders on the way home from work today and get my copy of the novel.
