ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hunter S. Thompson (1937–2005) was a journalist and novelist who created what came to be known as “Gonzo journalism.” A native of Louisville, Kentucky, he began writing as a sports columnist in Florida, and subsequently wrote for many newspapers. His research on the Hell's Angels involved more than a year of close association with the outlaws—riding, loafing, plotting, and eventually being stomped. Thompson's other works include
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Fear and Loathing: On the Campaign Trail '72
, and
The Rum Diary
(a novel).
