Synopsis: The best, the fastest, the hippest and the most unorthodox account ever published of the US 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.'

Product Description: The best account yet published of what it feels like to be out there in the middle of the American political process.

Book Description Straight Arrow Books, U.S.A., 1973. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Fair. Ralph Steadman (illustrator). 1st Edition. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. This HST classic is a real treat - this is the USA edition from 73 - the DJ is worn and creased like the lifestyle of HST! But the cover is excellent Stars and Stripes Skull - I have wrapped it in a protective cover. The book is solid and well bound and has an embossed skull on the cover too. It is a TRUE 1st Edition, 3rd Print. Great stuff!. Bookseller Inventory # 000352
