The contemporary American writer Tom Wolfe is focussing on Miami life in his latest book, Back to Blood - his first novel for eight years.

He tells Andrew Graham-Dixon that a former mayor of Miami once said New York was all about money, Washington was all about power and Miami was all about sex.

So as part of his research for the book Tom Wolfe decided to visit a strip club to see for himself what went on.
