Thompson, Hunter S.
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
A Near Fine copy with the usual touch of sunning to board edges in a Near Fine bright unclipped dust jacket with a short closed edge tear to the top edge of the front panel and a crease to the front flap. No names, writing, tears or chips to the jacket. The book is a roman à clef, rooted in autobiographical incidents. The story follows its protagonist, Raoul Duke, and his attorney, Dr. Gonzo, as they descend on Las Vegas to chase the American Dream through a drug-induced haze, all the while ruminating on the failure of the 1960s countercultural movement. The work is Thompson's most famous, and is noted for its lurid descriptions of illegal drug use, its early retrospective on the culture of the 1960s, and its popularization of Thompson's highly subjective blend of fact and fiction that has become known as gonzo journalism.

Thompson, Hunter S.
Hell's Angels. The Strange and Terrible Saga of the Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs.
This is a Fine, crisp unread copy in a Near Fine, bright dust jacket with a tiny closed edge tear to the bottom of the front panel and a touch of wear to the head of the spine. Otherwise a brilliant copy of Thompson's first book. The boards are perfectly square, the stamping on the spine spectacular and the black top stain is perfect.

Hey Rube. Blood Sport, the Bush Doctrine, and the Downward Spiral of Dumbness. Modern History from the Sports Desk.
A Fine tight copy in a Fine unclipped dust jacket. Sports, politics, and sex collide in Hunter S. Thompson’s wildly popular ESPN.com columns. Insightful, incendiary, outrageously brilliant, such was the man who galvanized American journalism with his radical ideas and gonzo tactics. For over half a century, Hunter S. Thompson devastated his readers with his acerbic wit and uncanny grasp of politics and history. His reign as "The Unabomber of contemporary letters" (Time) is more legendary than ever with Hey Rube. Fear, greed, and action abound in this hilarious, thought-provoking compilation as Thompson doles out searing indictments and uproarious rants while providing commentary on politics, sex, and sports—at times all in the same column.

The Curse of Lono.
A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright dj. This is the hardcover reissue of the Paperback Original of this Thompson classic of Gonzo journalism set in Hawaii.

[Hunter S. Thompson] Wenner, Jann S. and Corey Seymour.
Gonzo: The Life of Hunter S. Thompson: An Oral Biography.
A Fine tight copy in a Fine unclipped dust jacket. Born a rebel in Louisville, Kentucky, Thompson spent a lifetime channeling his energy and insight into such landmark works as Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas - and his singular and provocative style challenged and revolutionized writing. Now, for the first time ever, Jann Wenner and Corey Seymour have interviewed the Good Doctor's friends, family, acquaintances and colleagues and woven their memories into a brilliant oral biography. From Hell's Angels leader Sonny Barger to Ralph Steadman to Jack Nicholson to Jimmy Buffett to Pat Buchanan to Marilyn Manson and Thompson's two wives, son, and longtime personal assistant, more than 100 members of Thompson's inner circle bring into vivid focus the life of a man who was even more complicated, tormented, and talented than any previous portrait has shown. It's all here in its uncensored glory: the creative frenzies, the love affairs, the drugs and booze and guns and explosives and, ultimately, the tragic suicide. As Thompson was fond of saying, "Buy the ticket, take the ride."
