Wolfe was known primarily for his reach within the field of New Journalism, a reporting style that emerged in the 1960s and '70s characterized by novelistic writing and literary storytelling techniques.
"Everything that bloggers have done for journalism - and I personally think they've done a lot - Wolfe did it first, he did it 30 years earlier, and he did it better", novelist Rex Grossman told NPR. He was a star pitcher in high school and in college at Washington and Lee and unsuccessfully tried out for the New York Giants.
Wolfe was the author of nine nonfiction works from 1965 to 1981.
