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 No book ever written has more perfectly captured the spirit of the s counterculture. 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. McClarty's take on the attorney is particularly amusing. As Duke, he gets across Thompson's bewilderment, paranoia, and humorous despair, sometimes sounding like Jack Nicholson who would have made a perfect Duke , and avoids the mistake of imitating the real Thompson.
