Fear and Loathing at Rolling Stone by Hunter S. Thompson
The definitive collection of the king of gonzo journalism’s finest work for Rolling Stone. “Buy the ticket, take the ride,” was a favourite slogan of Hunter S. Thompson, and it pretty much defined both his work and his life. Fear and Loathing at Rolling Stone showcases the roller-coaster of a career at the magazine that was his literary home. Jann S. Wenner, the outlaw journalist’s friend and editor for nearly thirty-five years, has assembled articles 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.
