    Description'Hunter S. Thompson is to drug-addled, stream-of-consciousness, psycho-political black humor what Forrest Gump is to idiot savants' Philadelphia Inquirer Since his blazing 1972 opus, Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail, Hunter S. Thompson has reported the election story in his truly inimitable, just-short-of-libel style. In Better than Sex, Thompson hits the dusty trail again -- without leaving home -- yet manages to deliver a mind-bending view of the 1992 presidential campaign, in all of its horror, sacrifice, lust, and dubious glory. Complete with faxes sent to and received by candidate Clinton's top aides, and 100 per cent pure gonzo screeds on Richard Nixon, George Bush, and Oliver North, here is the most true-blue campaign tell-all ever penned by man or beast. '[Thompson] delivers yet another of his trademark cocktail mixes of unbelievable tales and dark observations ...Packed with egocentric anecdotes, musings and reprints of memos, faxes and scrawled handwritten notes' Los Angeles Daily News
