'It would not do to be found in the desert under these circumstances: firing wildly into the cactus from a car full of drugs'. "Fear and Loathing at Rolling Stone" showcases the evolution of a writer through his work at the magazine that he helped to put on the map. Jann S.Wenner, Hunter Thompson's editor and friend for nearly thirty-five years, has chosen the pieces, including many never collected before. They show how Thompson's "Rolling Stone" writing, when taken as a whole, forms an extended, allusive autobiography of the writer himself as he pursues his lifelong obsession, the king-hell story of them all: "The Death of the American Dream". From Thompson's first piece for "Rolling Stone" - the story of his infamous run for sheriff of Aspen in 1970 on the Freak Party platform - to his last essay on the Kerry/Bush showdown in 2004, with plenty of Nixon, Watergate, Vietnam, Muhammad Ali, and Bill Clinton woven in along the way, "Fear and Loathing at Rolling Stone" presents the very best of his work, newly edited and with a bonus of selected correspondence between Wenner and Thompson. The result is a vital inside glimpse at the rollicking spectacle of a writer at his peak, delivering his career bests to the editor of the magazine that became his literary home.
