    DescriptionThis is a compilation of the subversive, important and entertaining writer of Hunter S. Thompson - renowned American writer of "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas". 'It would not do to be found in the desert under these circumstances: firing wildly into the cactus from a car full of drugs'. "Fear and Loathing at Rolling Stone" showcases the evolution of the writer of "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" and "Hell's Angels", through his work at the magazine that he helped to put on the map. Jann S. Wenner, Hunter Thompson's editor and friend for nearly thirty-five years, has chosen the pieces, including many never collected before. They show how Thompson's "Rolling Stone" writing, when taken as a whole, forms an extended, allusive autobiography of the writer himself as he pursues his lifelong obsession, the king-hell story of them all: "The Death of the American Dream".

    Angry, prophetic, full of vitality and enormously funny [Praise for Kingdom of Fear] Guardian Absolutely brilliant ... Hunter S. Thompson has more fire and righteous outrage than most journalists half his age. Hard truths about America conveyed with tremendous wit [Praise for Kingdom of Fear] -- Eric Schlosser, Author Of Fast Food Nation The fear and loathing have never seemed more apt ... he's still raging against the machine [Praise for Kingdom of Fear] Literary Review Fantastic ... I don't think anyone else in print has called George Bush a whore beast [Praise for Kingdom of Fear] Newsnight Review
