What People are Saying About This

There are only two adjectives writers care about anymore..."brilliant" and "outrageous"...and Hunter Thompson has a freehold on both of them. --Tom Wolfe

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
