Description

In May 2005 Penguin will publish 70 unique titles to celebrate the company's 70th birthday. The titles in the Pocket Penguins series are emblematic of the renowned breadth of quality of the Penguin list and will hark back to Penguin founder Allen Lane's vision of good books for all'. High priest of hedonism and godfather of Gonzo journalism, Hunter S. Thompson is renowned for his counterculture masterpiece Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, which described his chemical-addled adventures in 1970s America. Taken from his sensational autobiography Kingdom of Fear (Penguin, 2004), these pieces provide hilarious insights into this self-confessed outlaw' including the time a joke led to accusations he was trying to murder Jack Nicholson.show more
