Reviews

A definitive biography...[McKeen] presents the life of this gifted yet troubled artist, warts and all, and he also takes the full measure of Thompson's journalistic accomplishment...a comprehensive portrait.
The best record to date of Thompson's life.--Michael Washburn
Essential.--Bret Sokol
This is the Great Red Shark of Hunter biographies. McKeen gives us full frontal HST, horrific and heroic, the class clown of the class war. Read it or die.--Greg Palast
There had to be more to Hunter Thompson than we knew. If you've ever wondered what was behind the sunglasses, drugs, and booze, what was beyond the craziness and the midnight motorcycle rides with no helmet, not even lights, here it is.--Rick Bragg
