really liked it
Read in August, 2008

Solid, if un-illuminating overview of interviews with Thompson. Most seem to be drawn from the '80s and '90s, when HST seemed more interested in talking about writing than actually writing. Still, fun stuff, and there are a few good ones in there, especially the early Playboy stuff & a Matthew Hahn piece from Atlantic Online, circa '97, where HST outlines what he'd assign in Journalism 101. (I'm also still rather proud of my 2003 profile from Relix, which closes the book.)

Andrew Jesse,

Did you see GONZO? I was in NY a few weeks ago and caught it. It was okay. Just curious as to what you thought.

Jesse Didn't catch it...
