His testament to Thompson, light on hyperbole, is both fitting and touching."--"New York Post""There can be no question that Hunter S. Thompson's pivotal works would not be the same without the accompanying artworks of his partner Ralph Steadman . . . A vivid, well-written paean to Thompson and, by extension, the character of the American rebel."--"The Buffalo News"
