Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72, by by Hunter S. Thompson

  • Sale
  • Regular price $350.00

First edition of Hunter S. Thompson's classic evisceration of both the political and the journalist classes during the 1972 campaign. With the same drug-addled alacrity and jaundiced wit that made Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas a hilarious hit, Hunter S. Thompson turns his savage eye and gonzo heart to the repellent and seductive race for President. He deconstructs the 1972 campaigns of idealist George McGovern and political hack Richard Nixon, ending up with a political vision that is eerily prophetic. A classic!
