9780863697692: The Best of

"Rolling Stone" is one of the most influential rock magazines in the world, and over the last 25 years it has published some of the most innovative, powerful and evocative writing. It was "Rolling Stone" which first published Hunter S. Thompson's "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" and Tom Wolfe's "The Right Stuff", and "Rolling Stone" which first featured Greil Marcus's writing on the Elvis phenomenon and "The Plague Years", and David Black's account of the arrival of the AIDS epidemic in New York. All these pieces, and dozens more, are collected in this book, an anthology of the very best in popular American journalism. From Ken Kesey writing on the search for the secret pyramid to P.J. O'Rourke's visit to the Philippines, which was recounted in "400 Years a Convent, 50 a Whorehouse", this is a brash and provocative collection of 25 years of journalism.
