Fearless and unsparing, the interviews element the most storied episodes of Thompson’s existence: a savage beating by the hands of the Hells Angels, speaking soccer with Nixon at the 1972 crusade path (“the in simple terms time in two decades of hearing the treacherous bastard that I knew he wasn’t lying”), and his not likely run for sheriff of Aspen. in different places, passionate tirades approximately journalism, tradition, weapons, medicines, and the legislations show off Thompson’s voice at its fiercest.

Arranged chronologically, and prefaced with Anita Thompson’s relocating account of her husband’s final years, the interviews current Hunter in all his fractured brilliance and supply an excellent portrait of his instances.
