Book Description Picador. 1 Paperback(s), 2011. soft. Book Condition: New. This 1988 book, the second volume of The Gonzo Papers, collects the best of Hunter S. Thompson's weekly columns for the San Francisco Examiner. Against a backdrop of late-night tattoo sessions and soldier-of-fortune trade shows, Thompson is at his apocalyptic best, covering such events as the 1988 Republican presidential run-up, with VP George H.W. Bush fighting for his political life against the likes of Al Haig, Pat Buchanan, and Pat Robertson. Thompson also details the GOP's obsession with drugs and drug abuse, the long shadow of well-funded television evangelists, and social phenomena like the rise of cable, satellite TV, and the 24-hour news cycle of CNN. Also including The Great Shark Hunt, Songs of the Doomed, and Better Than Sex, the four-volume series known as The Gonzo Papers encompass most of Thompson's post-1970s literary output, variously gathering early newspaper and magazine pieces, excerpts from books published and unpublished, columns from the San Francisco Examiner, and nearly all of his short pieces for Rolling Stone, where he remained on the masthead as chief of the National Affairs Desk."His writing, ever feisty, proves again . that he is one of our most incisive, insightful, and hilarious social critics."—NYTBR"Thompson's fans—there are many—will savor his wild words on Ted Kennedy, Gary Hart, Al Haig, Ollie North, George Bush, TV preachers, et al."—Library Journal 299.
