FILE - This Oct. 23, 2012 file photo shows author Tom Wolfe at a book signing for his novel "Back to Blood" at Barnes & Noble in New York. Wolfe's "Back to Blood" came out this fall and he has more fiction and nonfiction planned. "Being an octogenarian is just a hobby of mine," Wolfe, 81, says with a laugh, "something I do at night."
