The Gonzo Way: A Celebration of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The writer Tom Wolfe once described Hunter S. Thompson as the finest comic writer of the 20th century. Thompson was this and more, an apt observer of the American scene for almost four decades, the founding father of ?Gonzo journalism, ? and an inspiration to many. Through his writings, Thompson examined the loss of American innocence in the latter part of the 20th century, all the while holding up those deserving of contempt for closer examination and espousing (and exemplifying) what it meant to be a citizen at the end of the ?American Century.? With his death, a vacuum was created that remains to be filled. Anita Thompson explores the legacy of her late husband as a writer and as a citizen, through her own words and through interviews with those who knew him best including Johnny Depp, Ed Bradley, Doug Brinkley, Jack Nicholson, Bill Murray, Senator George McGovern, and others.

Book News Annotation:

The widow of the journalist icon, Anita Thompson has written a short but pithy memorial that traces the habits and beliefs that allowed Hunter S. Thompson to produce his writing and speechwriting despite--or alongside--his legendary wild exuberance. Not indexed. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Anita Thompson explores the legacy of her late husband and his unique approach to writing, politics, and life.

Synopsis:

Anita Thompson pays tribute to her late husband as a writer and as a citizen, through her own words and those of who knew him best. With elegant prose and entertaining anecdotes, she reveals a Hunter Thompson who was much more than a mere embodiment of sex, drugs, and rock and roll.
