Gonzo: The Life of Hunter S. Thompson

Jann Wenner, Corey Seymour, Johnny Depp

Few American lives are stranger or wilder than that of Hunter S. Thompson. Born a rebel in Kentucky, Thompson spent a lifetime channelling his energy into such landmark works as FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS - and his provocative style revolutionised writing. Now, for the first time ever, Jann Wenner and Corey Seymour have interviewed Thompson’s friends, family and colleagues and woven their memories into a brilliant oral biography. From Hell’s Angels leader Sonny Barger, to Ralph Steadman, to Jack Nicholson, more than 100 members of Thompson’s inner circle bring into vivid focus the life of a man who was more complicated and talented than any previous portrait has shown. It’s all here: the creative frenzies, the love affairs, the drugs, booze and guns, and, ultimately, the tragic suicide. As Thompson was fond of saying, Buy the ticket, take the ride.
