New York: Random House, 1971. First edition. Near Fine/Near Fine. A sharp, Near Fine copy in like dust jacket. Some fading to the board edges, as usual. Dust jacket unfaded and with just slight wear at the extremities. A superior copy, appearing unread.

The crackling and infamous Roman a Clef, a masterpiece of Gonzo Journalism from the man Tom Wolfe called "the 20th century's greatest comic writer in English." Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas was based on the experiences Thompson had travelling with activist Oscar Zeta Acosta. Thompson had originally wanted to speak to Acosta as part of a story he was doing on a Mexican journalist who had been killed by the Los Angeles police department, and they had gone to Las Vegas to find a safer and less charged place to speak, away from the racial tensions of the city. The book was later adapted into the 1998 cult classic film directed by Terry Gilliam and starring Johnny Depp and Benicio del Toro. "The whole book boils down to a kind of mad, corrosive prose poetry that picks up where Norman Mailer's An American Dream left off and explores what Tom Wolfe left out." (Contemporary New York Times Review). Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket.
