With "Gonzo" in theaters, this is a perfect time to revisit or discover Thompson. Along with "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas," this is probably his best, most sustained, & influential work. A wild, messy, impressionistic account of the 1972 campaign, this is far from objective journalism, but it captures a certain noxious, bloody, bitter political atmosphere that is still with us. What's often forgotten is how insightful and lucid Thompson's writing could be, although readers looking for flashes of druggy madness & alcohol fueled rage won't be disappointed. Featuring illustrations by Ralph Steadman.
