Description - Ancient Gonzo Wisdom by Anita Thompson

Bristling with inspired observations and wild anecdotes, this first collection offers a unique insight into the voice and mind of the inimitable Hunter S. Thompson, as recorded in the pages of Playboy, The Paris Review, Esquire, and elsewhere. Fearless and unsparing, the interviews detail some of the most storied episodes of Thompsons life: a savage beating at the hands of the Hells Angels, talking football with Nixon on the 1972 Campaign Trail (the only time in 20 years of listening to the treacherous bastard that I knew he wasnt lying), and his unlikely run for sheriff of Aspen. Elsewhere, passionate tirades about journalism, culture, guns, drugs, and the law showcase Thompsons voice at its fiercest. Arranged chronologically, and prefaced with Anita Thompsons moving account of her husbands last years, the interviews present Hunter in all his fractured brilliance and provide an exceptional portrait of his times.
