Description
Assembled and edited by his widow Anita Thompson, and prefaced with her moving account of her husband's last years, this collection offers unique insight into the voice and mind of Hunter S. Thompson, as recorded over four decades of interviews in publications like Playboy, Paris Review, and Esquire, as well as various lectures and television appearances. Many appear in print here for the first time, and bristle with inspired observations and wild anecdotes, detailing such storied episodes of Thompson's life as his savage beating at the hands of Hell's Angels, his talking football with Nixon on the 1972 Campaign Trail ('the only time in 20 years of listening to the treacherous bastard that I knew he wasn't lying'), his own unlikely run for sheriff of Aspen, and his successful public battle, during the last years of his life, to free an innocent woman from prison. Here too are Thompson's passionate tirades about journalism, culture, drugs, guns, and the law. The book is introduced Christopher Hitchens showcasing his singular voice at its fiercest.

"Years after his death, the rapid-fire wit and venom of Thompson's writing is undiminished. Ancient Gonzo Wisdom features classic HST interviews."GQ Magazine
