The Proud Highway: Saga of a Desperate Southern Gentleman, 1955-1967 (The Fear and Loathing Letters, Vol. 1)

Hunter S. Thompson


right here, for the 1st time, is the personal and such a lot intimate correspondence of 1 of America's so much influential and incisive journalists--Hunter S. Thompson. In letters to a who is Who of luminaries from Norman Mailer to Charles Kuralt, Tom Wolfe to Lyndon Johnson, William Styron to Joan Baez--not to say his mom, the NRA, and a series of newspaper editors--Thompson vividly catches the tenor of the days in Sixties the US and channels all of it via his personal razor-sharp point of view. Passionate of their admiration, cruel of their scorn, and not something under attention-grabbing, the dispatches of The Proud street supply an exceptional and penetrating gaze into the evolution of the main outrageous raconteur/provocateur ever to attack a typewriter.
