Tom Wolfe at Miami Book Fair Interational: Even I can’t sum up Miami - Books - "Here are the things you might not know about Tom Wolfe: He prefers the tango to salsa dancing. He fondly remembers the flamingos at Hialeah Park. He has sipped Cuban coffee at Versailles. And he’s not crazy about hip-hop but likes country music, if only for the song titles. And yes. He wore one of his famous white suits — with black and white checked socks, no less — when he kicked off the 29th Miami Book Fair International on Sunday. Wolfe, 81, was in town to talk about his new novel Back to Blood (Little, Brown, $30), set in an ethnically embattled, riotous Miami he researched from the strip clubs of Sunny Isles Beach to the pastelito shops of Hialeah. . .
