Fear and Loathing in America: The Brutal Odyssey of an Outlaw Journalist
Hunter S. Thompson
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Brazen, incisive, and outrageous as ever, Hunter S. Thompson is back with another astonishing volume of his private correspondence, the highly anticipated follow-up to “The Proud Highway.” When that first book of letters appeared in 1997, “Time” pronounced it “deliriously entertaining”; “Rolling Stone” called it “brilliant beyond description”; and “The New York Times” celebrated its “wicked humor and bracing political conviction.”Spanning the years between 1968 and 1976, these never-before-published letters show Thompson building his legend: running for sheriff in Aspen, Colorado; creating the seminal road book "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas;“ twisting political reporting to new heights for ”Rolling Stone;“ and making sense of it all in the landmark ”Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72." To read Thompson's dispatches from these years — addressed to the author's friends, enemies, editors, and creditors, and such notables as Jimmy Carter, Tom Wolfe, and Kurt Vonnegut — is to read a raw, revolutionary eyewitness account of one of the most exciting and pivotal eras in American history.
