What People are Saying About This
Hunter Thompson is the most creatively crazy and vulnerable of the New Journalists. His ideas are brilliant and honorable and valuable...the literary equivalent of Cubism: all rules are broken. --Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
I enjoyed it thoroughly; it's elegant and loving… --Jann S. Wenner, Editor and Publisher, Rolling Stone
Meet the Author
Hunter S. Thompson's books include Fear and Loathing in America, Screwjack, Hell's Angels, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, The Proud Highway, Better Than Sex, The Rum Diary, and Kingdom of Fear. He was contributor to various national and international publications, including a weekly sports column for ESPN.com. Thompson was famous for his free-wheeling, intoxicant-fueled observations on politics and society in Rolling Stone. With wit and salty language, he created a public persona of a hard-drinking, gun-toting anti-authoritarian. He centered his reporting around his crazy behavior and called it "gonzo journalism."
Hunter S. Thompson died February 2005.
