Fear and Loathing in America

The Brutal Odyssey of an Outlaw Journalist, 1968–1976

The Gonzo Letters: Book #2


This astonishing volume of private correspondence, acritically acclaimed follow-up to TheProud Highway, shows Hunter S.Thompson as brazen, incisive, and outrageous as ever. When that first book ofletters appeared in 1997, Time pronounced it “deliriously entertaining,” Rolling Stone called it “brilliant beyond description,” and the New York Times celebratedits “wicked humor and bracing political conviction.”

Spanning the years between 1968 and 1976, thesenever-before-published letters show Thompson building his legend: running forsheriff in Aspen, Colorado; creating the seminal road book Fear and Loathingin Las Vegas; twistingpolitical reporting to new heights for Rolling Stone; and making sense of it all in thelandmark Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail ’72. To read Thompson’s dispatches fromthese years—addressed to the author’s friends, enemies, editors, and creditorsand such notables as Jimmy Carter, Tom Wolfe, and Kurt Vonnegut—is to read araw, revolutionary eyewitness account of one of the most exciting and pivotaleras in American history.
