This book is likely to always be on my "Currently Reading" shelf since I randomly pick it up and read excerpts whenever I am in the mood for a rant, a raving tirade pointed seemingly haphazardly at whomever should happen to cross paths with the mercurial and sharp tongued Hunter S. Thompson.
Basically this is a collection of correspondences between Thompson and a whole entourage of characters from book publishers and magazine editors, personal friends, TV station executives, newspapers, political contacts, drug fiends, colleagues and random strangers. Thompson spared no one when he sat at his typewriter, and his wit and humor were not reserved for merely published works!
This is an essential for any fans of Hunter S. Thompson.
