Fear and Loathing

Item Details

With the same drug-addled alacrity and jaundiced wit that made Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas a hilarious hit, Hunter S. Thompson turns his savage eye and gonzo heart to the repellent and seductive race for President.He deconstructs the 1972 campaigns of idealist George McGovern and political hack Richard Nixon, ending up with a political vision that is eerily prophetic.A classic!

I will return this soon, I swear - it's a dense read, but worth it for any student of politics or journalism. The man was a genius - an insane, disjointed, wordy bastard - but a genius nonetheless.
