From the Publisher
Editors Note First published in Rolling Stone magazine in 1971, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is Hunter S. Thompsons savagely comic account of what happened to this country in the 1960s. It is told through the writers account of an assignment he undertook with his attorney to visit Las Vegas and "check it out." The book stands as the final word on the highs and lows of that decade, one of the defining works of our time, and a stylistic and journalistic tour de force. As Christopher Lehmann-Haupt wrote in The New York Times, it has "a kind of mad, corrosive prose poetry that picks up where Norman Mailers An American Dream left off and explores what Tom Wolfe left out."????????This Modern Library edition features Ralph Steadman's original drawings and three companion pieces selected by Dr. Thompson: "Jacket Copy for Fear and Loath-ing in Las Vegas," "Strange Rumblings in Aztlan," and "The Kentucky Derby Is Deca-dent and Depraved."
Editors Note 1 Thompson's legendary tale of excess. The long-awaited feature film promises to be one of the most talked-about movies of the season, starring Johnny Depp.
Annotation A classic of American journalism from the aftermath of the '60s. Hunter Thompson's chronicle of his life on the road and on drugs was originally published serially in "Rolling Stone" in 1971, and earned him the title of "Gonzo journalist."
Editors Note 3 Contains the journalist's classic account of his visit to Las Vegas, and includes three companion pieces
