White-all-over author Tom Wolfe has a new, extremely well-compensated (we imagine) short story in Vanity Fair. He decided to write about the wealthy this time! Yet he retains that flair for authentic dialogue he displayed in I Am Charlotte Simmons.

One of the sweetest sounds in the world was Corky making the rounds up here on the executive floor, saying in his laid-back voice, "I feel like boffing some bimbos in the Caribbean. Anybody like to come along?"

It's almost like you're right there on the executive floor. Anyhow the writing's not bad as long as you can forget that this story was almost certainly inspired by Tom Wolfe standing in a long line at the airport.
