It's not that Wolfe looks old, or is old; it's just that his writing is so irreverent, so

The author had initially thought of writing the book as a serial as Charles Dickens used to write in his time. The book was divided into 27 installments in Rolling Stone. Before being published in the form of a complete book, the author had revised it several times. When it was first published, it became an instant bestseller. The success was really phenomenal. Although Wolfe had already written some other books, the success of this book was incomparable. It is often said to be the quintessential novel of the 1980s. The biting satire and the piercing criticism of the society during the presidency of Ronald Reagan make it one of the most widely read book.
