Because of my curiosity about the consistency of the authors.

It's not even necessarily knee-jerk completism so much as that Tom Wolfe is possibly the least consistent author ever--he gives me a lot to think about from his crotchety-old-man perspective even when he writes something hateful, and he's a freakin' CONSERVATIVE who writes for Rolling Stone. I dunno, I'm sort of fascinated and repelled by the guy at the same time. The only more inconsistent writer I know of is....well, Stephen King!!! And I haven't read any book written by him after like 1995, so there, and the last time I read ANYTHING by him was The Talisman several years back which I surprisingly hated.
