In 1971, the outlandish originator of gonzo journalism, Hunter S. Thompson (1937-2005) commandeered the international literary limelight with his best-selling, comic masterpiece Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Thompson displayed an uncanny flair for inserting himself into the epicenter of major sociopolitical events of our generation. and his audacious, satirical, ranting screeds on American culture have been widely read and admired. Whether in books, essays, or collections of his correspondence, his raging and incisive voice and writing style are unmistakable. Conversations with Hunter S. Thompson is the first compilation of selected personal interviews that traces the trajectory of his prolific and much- publicized career. These engaging exchanges reveal Thompson's determination, self-indulgence, energy, outrageous wit, ire, and passions as he discusses his life and work. The book features pieces from Playboy, Spin, Hustler, American Journalism Review, and talks with such notables as Douglas Brinkley and Curtis Wilkie; and includes interviews ranging from 1974 to 2003, spanning most of his career.
