This is the king of gonzo journalism's most scorching, original and inspired work for Rolling Stone, showing a writer's evolution at the magazine that he helped put on the map. From Thompson's first piece - on his infamous run for sheriff of Aspen in 1970 on the Freak Party platform - to his last essay on the Kerry/Bush showdown in 2004, via portraits of Nixon, Watergate, Vietnam and Muhammad Ali, this volume also includes some articles not previously collected, as well as correspondence between Thompson and his friend and editor Jann S. Wenner. The result is a vital portrait of a writer as he pursues his lifelong obsession- The Death of the American Dream. Edited with an Introduction by Jann S. Wenner 'Glorious . . . wave upon wave of wild, ferocious, perfectly rendered prose . . . Thompson changed the meaning of journalism.' Wall Street Journal 'The great comic writer of the twentieth century.' Tom Wolfe
