Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Draper's portrayal of Wenner as a talented but drug-abusing, scattered, celebrity-crazed individual--a political dilettante and a former love child--leaves the reader wondering how he made such a vulgar (and brilliant) success of the nation's pop culture periodical, Rolling Stone . That question remains largely unexplained here, although Draper still offers some engaging insights into the pitfalls and complications of publishing. He chronicles how the journalistic talent Rolling Stone attracted--including Hunter S. Thompson, Lester Bangs, Jon Landau, Greil Marcus, Tim Cahill, and others--kept the magazine afloat despite Wenner's inattention and bungling. This is for larger communications collections and long-time readers of Rolling Stone. -- Lauren Bielski, New York
