"Harrell beautifully tells the story of how her relationships with the three men, predominantly Thompson, progressed, sharing intimate moments and keeping the reader turning the page - Portland Book Review"
"If you want to know what the Sixties were really like, read 'Keep This Quiet: A Memoir.' It's all there: the openness, the hope, the ideals, the risks, the highs and lows, the travel, the love" - Robert Morgan, author of "Gap Creek" and "Terroir"
"A Feast for the Gonzo Soul"-Martin Flynn, owner of www.hstbooks.org
"Margaret Harrell's Keep This Quiet offers an illuminating look at Hunter S. Thompson in full throttle trying to make it as a Top Notch prose-stylist. Harrell fills in many important biographical gaps. A welcome addition to what is becoming the HST cottage industry. Read it"-Douglas Brinkley, editor of The Proud Highway and Fear and Loathing in America
"Keep This Quiet! is a moving read and much recommended to any literary studies or memoir collection"-Midwest Book Review
"In the ever expanding list of biographies and memoirs about Hunter S. Thompson, this latest offering, Keep This Quiet! by Margaret A. Harrell, is quite simply a breath of fresh air. . . . What sets 'Keep This Quiet!' apart is the extent to which Harrell explores the question of identity and myth, in her quest to simultaneously answer questions concerning her own character and that of one Hunter S. Thompson . . . In closing, this book is a joy to read, particularly for anyone that has that urge to express themselves through the creative arts in all their forms."
