'I was drunk, crazed and heavily armed at all times . . .'Be Afraid. Hunter S. Thompson - hellraising author of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, high priest of hedonism and supreme chronicler of the American nightmare - tells the uncensored story of a life dedicated to excess in this outrageous autobiography. Here, for the first time, the godfather of Gonzo journalism takes on the subject no one else could handle: himself. It's a tale of fast living, hard drinking, sharp writing and ingesting most illegal substances known to humanity. Of crazed road trips, girls, guns, bikes, brushes with the law and accidentally being accused of trying to kill Jack Nicholson. And it's an explosive, no-holds-barred assassination of America today. Read it and feel the fear.

"Publishers Weekly" Rollickingly funny throughout, Thompson's latest proves that the father of gonzo journalism is alive and well.

Hunter S. Thompson

Hunter S. Thompson is one of the great cultural figures of his generation. His writing spawned a whole genre (Gonzo journalism) and a myriad of imitators, but he remained the first and the finest - a cult figure whose legacy and influence lives on.
