really liked it
bookshelves: nonfiction

As a writer, I especially loved reading HST's letters to his editor, Jann. ("Because what happens to anybody who gets into any kind of forced/regular writing is that he's bound to make a useless fool of himself now and then ... and it's hard to set a price on that kind of reality.")

I haven't read all of HST's stories, but I decided not to read them here because I noticed that the ones that I have read elsewhere were heavily edited for this book. Why shorten Fear and Loathing?

OK for now...
