Fear And Loathing: On The Campaign Trail '72

Recently I've become very interested in the work of Hunter S. Thompson. For reasons that I cannot explain, I am drawn in by his personality and the way that he lived his life. After seeing Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas, I was suddenly captivated by the Doctor and the way that he influenced others. It goes without saying that he was incredibly influential to society. Anyways, I've just started reading another of his books and so far I'm loving it.

"Hunter Thompson is the most creatively crazy and vulnerable of the New Journalists. His books are brilliant and honorable and valuable. . . the literary equivalent of Cubism: all rules are broken"
