'Well ...yes, and here we go again' Dr Hunter S. Thompson Indeed we do. Here, in one chunky volume, is the best of gonzo. From Private Thompson in trouble with the air force, to the devastating portrait of the ageing Muhammad Ali. Taking in the Kentucky Derby, Freak Power in the Rockies, Nixon in '68, McGovern in '72, Fear and Loathing at the Watergate, Jimmy Carter and the Great Leap of Faith -- and much more. An indispensable compendium of decadence, depravity and horse-sense. 'Hunter Thompson elicits the same kind of admiration one would feel for a streaker at Queen Victoria's funeral' William F. Buckley 'No other reporter reveals how much we have to fear and loathe, yet does it so hilariously. Now that the dust of the sixties has settled, his hallucinated vision strikes one as having been the sanest' Nelson Algren

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.
