Tom Wolfe, the author whose groundbreaking and radiant journalism helped create a new genre of nonfiction in books like “The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test” and “The Right Stuff,” has died. He was 88.

Wolfe’s death was confirmed by his agent, Lynn Nesbit.

Wolfe, always impeccably attired and often spotted strolling around New York City in his signature white three-piece suit, was one of the leading practitioners of so-called New Journalism, a style that fused novelistic flair with traditional reporting.

He chronicled the social upheavals of America, immersing readers in everything from the California hippie counterculture to the space race. He peppered his writing with gleeful punctuation and memorable phrases — coining era-defining expressions like “radical chic” and “the Me Generation.”
