Synopsis: A wild ride to the dark side of Americana.  Hunter S. Thompson?s and Ralph Steadman?s most eccentric book
  The Curse of Lono is to Hawaii what  Fear and Loathing was to Las Vegas: the crazy tales of a journalist?s ?coverage? of a news event that ends up being a wild ride to the dark side of Americana. Originally published in 1983,  The Curse of Lono features all of the  zany, hallucinogenic wordplay and feral artwork for which the  Hunter S. Thompson/Ralph Steadmanduo became known and loved.

This curious book, considered an oddity among Hunter?s ?uvre, was long out of print, prompting collectors to search high and low for an original copy. TASCHEN?s signed, limited edition sold out before the book even hit the stores?this unlimited version, in a different, smaller format, makes  The Curse of Lono accessible to everyone.
