‚It would not do to be found in the desert under these circumstances: firing wildly into the cactus from a car full of drugs‘
This is the king of gonzo journalism’s most scorching, original and inspired work for Rolling Stone, showing a writer’s evolution at the magazine that he helped put on the map. From Thompson’s first piece – on his infamous run for sheriff of Aspen in 1970 on the Freak Party platform – to his last essay on the Kerry/Bush showdown in 2004, via portraits of Nixon, Watergate, Vietnam and Muhammad Ali, this volume also includes some articles not previously collected, as well as correspondence between Thompson and his friend and editor Jann S. Wenner. The result is a vital portrait of a writer as he pursues his lifelong obsession: The Death of the American Dream.
