Tom Wolfe (1930–2018)


Remembering Tom Wolfe

All of us at Harper’s Magazine deeply mourn the death of our longtime friend and contributing editor Tom Wolfe. Some of his most influential writings were published in this magazine. These include “The Painted Word,” “Stalking the Billion-Footed Beast,” and “From Bauhaus to Our House.” His essays and journalism, as elegant as the figure he cut, have greatly enhanced the esteem Harper’s has enjoyed over the past half century. He will be missed.
