Maverick author Hunter S. Thompson introduced the world to “gonzo journalism” with this cult classic that shot back up the best-seller lists after Thompson’s suicide in 2005. No book ever written has more perfectly captured the spirit of the 1960s counterculture. In Las Vegas to cover a motorcycle race, Raoul Duke (Thompson) and his attorney Dr. Gonzo (inspired by a friend of Thompson) are quickly diverted to search for the American dream. Their quest is fueled by nearly every drug imaginable and quickly becomes a surreal experience that blurs the line between reality and fantasy. But there is more to this hilarious tale than reckless behavior—for underneath the hallucinogenic facade is a stinging criticism of American greed and consumerism.

Quotes & Awards

  • “For Thompson to remember and pen his experiences with such clarity and wit is nothing short of a miracle; an impressive feat no matter how one feels about the subject matter. A first-rate sensibility twinger, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is a pop-culture classic, an icon of an era past, and a nugget of pure comedic genius.”

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • “The best book on the dope decade.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is a scorching epochal sensation. There are only two adjectives writers care about any more—“brilliant” and “outrageous”—and Hunter Thompson has a freehold on both of them.”

    Tom Wolfe
