About This Item
PPCM incorrectly dates the image as being 1992, which the website of photographer Paul Harris and Getty Images dates to 1990, as well as an incorrect description of the image as Thompson "at his desk in his Rocky Mountain cabin."
Terry Gilliam, fittingly, directed the 1998 film adaptation of Thompson's outrageous novel, starring Johnny Depp and Benicio Del Toro.
10 x 8.25 inches. Near Fine.
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: A Savage Journey to the Heart of the American Dream is a novel by Hunter S. Thompson, illustrated by Ralph Steadman. The book is a roman à clef, rooted in autobiographical incidents. The story follows its protagonist, Raoul Duke, and his attorney, Dr. Gonzo, as they descend on Las Vegas to chase the American Dream through a drug-induced haze. The novel first appeared as a two-part series in Rolling Stone magazine in 1971, was printed as a book the same year, and was later adapted into a film of the same name in 1998 starring Johnny Depp and Benicio del Toro. According to The New York Times, Fear and Loathing "cemented Mr. Thompson's place as a singular presence in American journalism or, as he once called himself, 'a connoisseur of edge work.'"
