Thompson is a crazy character, and the book weaves together a plausible seduction story with direct quotes from friends and family members. I have trouble with him a bit, because I enjoy his craziness, but only because I would never want it in my life in any real way at all. He was a druggie and a drunkard, and it ultimately ruined his life, but he was a brilliant writer, and I learned a LOT about his life and his interactions in politics and the like. Pretty good book.
