Description
Hunter S. Thompson detonated a two-ton bomb under the staid field of journalism with his early magazine pieces, his revelatory book Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, and his campaign coverage in Rolling Stone. When Thompson was on, there was no one better at capturing who Americans were and what America was, be it in politics, at the Kentucky Derby, or in the Hells Angels' lair. William McKeen became friends with Thompson after writing a monograph on his journalism. McKeen now has interviewed many of Thompson's associates who wouldn't speak before, from childhood friends to colleagues, to assistants who sat around Thompson's "kitchen control room" late at night when he did most of his work. McKeen gets behind the drinking and drugs to show the man and the writer.

"This is the Great Red Shark of Hunter biographies. McKeen gives us full frontal HST, horrific and heroic, the class clown of the class war. Read it or die."óGreg Palast
