    DescriptionBegun in 1959 by a then-twenty-two-year-old Hunter S. Thompson, "The Rum Diary" is a brilliantly tangled love story of jealousy, treachery and violent alcoholic lust in the Caribbean boomtown that was San Juan, Puerto Rico, in the late 1950s. Exuberant and mad, youthful and energetic, "The Rum Diary" is an outrageous, drunken romp in the spirit of Thompson's bestselling "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" and "Hell's Angels."

    Review quote
    "Crackling, twisted, searing, paced to a deft prose rhythm . . . A shot of Gonzo with a rum chaser." --"San Francisco Chronicle"
