Wolfe's agent Lynn Nesbit told USA media the writer died on Monday in a Manhattan hospital, where he was being treated for an infection.
Wolfe had been living in New York since 1962, when he started reporting for the New York Herald Tribune.
"To pull it off, you casually have to stay with the people you are writing about for long stretches. long enough so that you are actually there when revealing scenes take place in their lives."
Wolfe was known for his fiction and nonfiction works, like "The Bonfire of the Vanities" and "The Right Stuff". In addition to his influence on literature and journalism, Wolfe is also credited with coining terms such as "radical chic" and "the Me Decade", in reference to the 1970s. He was born and raised in Richmond, Virginia, and went to college at Washington and Lee University and received his PhD from Yale.
Wolfe published a string of nonfiction books beginning with "The Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby" in 1965, a collection of his newspaper and magazine articles in which he experimented with using literary techniques and threw objectivity to the wind.
