Tom Wolfe Gets Back to Blood Previous Broadcasts

KQED Life: Sun, Apr 7, 2013 -- 10:30 PM

Readers and fans of Tom Wolfe can now, for the first time, take a journey with the iconic American author to see and hear a story that has never been told ? the making of one of his novels. Set in Miami, like his soon-to-be-released book Back to Blood, this documentary tells the tale of Wolfe's latest literary adventure ? how the writer carefully concocted and crafted his new sun-soaked, immigrant-centric thriller. Tom Wolfe: Blood Lines, the only film ever made about Wolfe, captures rare, candid moments as he researches his subject matter with myriad sources in diverse locals in and around Miami. He is soaked during a regatta as bikini-clad revelers boat-hop across Biscayne Bay. He checks out white suits at thrift shops, visits new immigrant homes and rubs elbows with Miami's elite. The documentary is both an ode to the elusive literary giant and a voyage through the best and worst of wacky Miami.
