Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

Fear and Loathing in Las VegasT638488589
Dr Hunter S Thompson's twisted, madcap adventure to find the heart of the American Dream is staged in this once-in-a-lifetime collaboration between his old friend and colleague Lou Stein and the legendary British illustrator Ralph Steadman. Two assignments in Nevada turn super-ugly for a young journalist and his travelling companion, an attorney. Partly because they're chock full of narcotics, but mostly because they're on a savage journey to discover how the idea of America got broken, and why there's no way back to freedom, real freedom. Experience one of the wildest, most vibrant and utterly essential books of our time by immersing yourselves in the colour, sounds, and soul of the 70's.
Book by Hunter S Thompson
