First edition of this collection of of letters Hunter S. Thompson. Octavo, original boards. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with light shelf wear. Signed by both Hunter Thompson on the half-title page and David Halberstam on the title page, who contributed the foreword to this volume.
Brazen, incisive, and outrageous as ever, this second volume of Thompson’s private correspondence is the highly anticipated follow-up to The Proud Highway. When that first book of letters appeared in 1997, Time pronounced it "deliriously entertaining"; Rolling Stone called it "brilliant beyond description"; and The New York Times celebrated its "wicked humor and bracing political conviction."
