Description:

Early printing; unstated. Shiny black boards, white stamped spine titles, moderate shelf wear, rub. Pages generally very good; few at center w/corner clipped, few w/notation, name marked out at endpaper. Black textured endpapers. Bind solid. Dj some edge wear, rub, crease; unclipped 7.95, protected in new, clear sleeve. Jacket art features smiling, cracked skull w/swastikas rising in eyes, five-pointed American star at forehead in good ol' red, white, and blue on black b.g. by Thomas W. Benton. Image of an engrossed Dr. Thompson and George McGovern at back. Vibrantly illustrated throughout by Ralph Steadman w/several full-page illustrations. Rare, classic photos and varied cryptic symbology throughout. Hunter's third published tale of mayhem and discovery travels far beyond the campaign trail in scope and finds him at the height of his incendiary, insightful talents. The best, the fastest, the hippest and the most unorthodox account ever published of the US government's presidential electoral process in all its madness and corruption. In 1972 Hunter S. Thompson, the creator and king of Gonzo journalism, covered the US presidential campaign for Rolling Stone magazine alongside the establishment newsmen of Washington. The result is a classic piece of subversive reportage and a fantastic ride on the rollercoaster of Hunter's uniquely savage imagination. In his own words, written years before Watergate: 'It is Nixon himself who represents that dark, venal and incurably violent side of the American character almost every other country in the world has learned to fear and despise.' 508 pages. Insured post. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory #

Review: With the same drug-addled alacrity and jaundiced wit that made Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas a hilarious hit, Hunter S. Thompson turns his savage eye and gonzo heart to the repellent and seductive race for President. He deconstructs the 1972 campaigns of idealist George McGovern and political hack Richard Nixon, ending up with a political vision that is eerily prophetic. A classic!
