|Hailed by "The Philadelphia Inquirer" as "laugh-out-loud funny" and "a great and an unexpected joy," "The Rum Diary" "reveals a young Hunter S. Thompson brimming with talent." Based on Thompson''s own experiences as a reporter in Puerto Rico for "The Nation," the "National Journal," and the "San Juan Star" in the late fifties and early sixties, "The Rum Diary" is a tangled love story in a Caribbean boomtown. The narrator, Paul Kemp, irresistibly drawn to a sexy, mysterious woman, is thrust into a world where corruption and get-rich-quick schemes rule, and anything (including murder) is permissible. In his signature tongue-in-cheek style, Thompson presents a dazzling, comedic romp, a fictional excursion as riveting and outrageous as his popular" Fear and Loathing" books.|
From the Publisher:
Thompson’s brilliant love story of jealousy, treachery, and violent lust in the Caribbean, now a major motion picture starring Johnny Depp.
