    DescriptionBrazen, incisive, and outrageous as ever, Hunter S. Thompson is back with another astonishing volume of private correspondence, the highly anticipated follow-up to THE PROUD HIGHWAY. Spanning the years between 1968 and 1976, these never-before-published letters show Thompson building his legend: running for sheriff in Aspen, Colorado, creating the seminal road book FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS, twisting political reporting to new heights for ROLLING STONE and making sense of it all in the landmark FEAR AND LOATHING ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL '72. To read Thompson's dispatches from these years addressed to authors and friends, enemies, editors and creditors, and such notables as Jimmy Carter, Tom Wolfe and Kurt Vonnegut - is to read a raw, revolutionary eyewitness account of one of the most exciting and pivotal eras in American history.

    Review text
    Hunter Thompson is one of the great rebel journalists of the modern USA, a man who has bent all the rules time and again. This second volume of his letters, plus a few articles, covers the period from the 1968 to 1976, and includes publication of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, The Great Shark Hunt and Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail. There are letters to friends, editors and public figures, all of them equally impassioned and often very lengthy. A dynamic insight into a stormy era. (Kirkus UK)
