Farewell to Tom Wolfe, the impeccably attired author and early practitioner of groundbreaking "New Journalism" of the 1960s, as he died on Monday in a Manhattan hospital.
Wolfe, widely regarded as one of the top American journalists of the 20th century, focused his keen eye and explosive writing style on subjects from the Merry Pranksters to the early days of the space race before turning to fiction.
His best-selling books included non-fiction like "The Right Stuff," his riveting account of America's first astronauts, and fiction like "The Bonfire of the Vanities" — his scathing satire of New York City in the '80s.

Not a teen any longer, now aged 22.
Eadington is a design student from Kansas, currently living in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK. At the age of 14 she decided to take a picture every day and a few years ago she released her first timelapse, showing how much she grew over eight years. “I saw a few similar projects on the internet and thought it could be interesting to see how I changed as I grew up too,” Eadington told Bored Panda.
