Quarter black cloth, black paper boards. 602 pp. Light rubbing to extremities. Dust jacket has some light staining. In this astonishing volume, which begins with the report that got Pvt. Thompson in trouble when he was in the Air Force and ends with Dr. Thompson's portrait of an aging Muhammad Ali, lies a remarkable journey through Hunter Thompson's life as a citizen of his own country, and an equally remarkable view of Hunter Thompson's changing voice from the traditional reporter of his National Observer days to the "Gonzo" journalist for Scanlon's and Rolling Stone.
