More About Fear and Loathing at Rolling Stone by Hunter S. Thompson; Jann S. Wenner; Paul Scanlon
 
 
 
Overview
From the bestselling author of The Rum Diary and king of Gonzo journalism Hunter S. Thompson, comes the definitive collection of the journalist s finest work from "Rolling Stone." "Fear and Loathing at Rolling Stone" showcases the roller-coaster of a career at the magazine that was his literary home.
Buy the ticket, take the ride, was a favorite slogan of Hunter S. Thompson, and it pretty much defined both his work and his life. Jann S. Wenner, the outlaw journalist s friend and editor for nearly thirty-five years, has assembled articles and a wealth of never- before-seen correspondence and internal memos from Hunter s storied tenure at "Rolling Stone" that begin with Thompson s infamous run for sheriff of Aspen on the Freak Party ticket in 1970 and end with his final piece on the Bush-Kerry showdown of 2004. In between is Thompson s remarkable coverage of the 1972 presidential campaign and plenty of attention paid to Richard Nixon; encounters with Muhammad Ali, Bill Clinton, and the Super Bowl; and a lengthy excerpt from his acknowledged masterpiece, "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas." The definitive volume of Hunter S. Thompson s work published in the magazine, "Fear and Loathing at Rolling Stone "traces the evolution of a personal and professional relationship that helped redefine modern American journalism, presenting Thompson through a new prism as he pursued his lifelong obsession: The life and death of the American Dream."
