Screwjack, Paperback / softback Book


Including a chronicle of his first mescaline experience, a trailer-park confrontation and ending with an unnaturally poignant love story, Screwjack is an exhilarating collection of short stories.

As Thompson puts it in his introduction, the three stories here `build like Bolero to a faster & wilder climax that will drag the reader relentlessly up a hill, & then drop him off a cliff . . . That is the Desired Effect.' Amid all the hilarity, Hunter S.

Thompson proves just how brilliant a prose stylist he really is.

Screwjack is salacious, unsettling, and brutally lyrical. `Hunter Thompson elicits the same kind of admiration one would feel for a streaker at Queen Victoria's funeral' William F Buckley `There are only two adjectives writers care about anymore, brilliant and outrageous, and Hunter S.

Thompson has a freehold on both of them' Tom Wolfe
