    Sounds like Bonfire of the Vanities, with Wolfe replacing blacks with Latinos and New York with Miami.

    •  I never much liked Wolfe's fiction, (0+ / 0-)

      from The Bonfire of the Vanities on to the latest. The novels borrow so heavily from Wolfe's journalism one may as well just read Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers (upon which most of the Bonfire of the Vanities is based) or other early articles again ... they were better.
