â€˜We were somewhere around Barstow on the edge of the desert when the drugs began to take hold.
I remember saying something like, â€œI feel a bit lightheaded; maybe you should drive â€¦â€â€™ Hunter S.
Thompson is roaring down the desert highway to Las Vegas with his attorney, the Samoan, to find the dark side of the American Dream.
Armed with a drug arsenal of stupendous proportions, the duo engage in a surreal succession of chemically enhanced confrontations with casino operators, police officers and assorted Middle Americans. This stylish reissue of Hunter S. Thompsonâ€™s iconic masterpiece, a controversial bestseller when it appeared in 1971, features the brilliant Ralph Steadman illustrations of the original.
It brings to a new generation the hallucinatory humour and nightmare terror of Hunter S.
