About This Item

New York: Random House, 1971. First Edition. Very Good/Very Good. First edition, first printing. Signed by illustrator Ralph Steadman with a small sketch on the half-title page. Bound in publisher's original paper-covered boards over black cloth spine lettered in silver. Very Good with lean to binding, light sunning to edges and toning to pages. In a Very Good unclipped dust jacket with rubbing, toning, edge wear, creasing to flaps and chipping at the foot of the spine. A drugged-out mixture of travel writing, journalism and literature set to boil against the desert heat. A lovely copy of Thompson's vivid and wild journey, which seems inseparable from Steadman's iconic, perfectly paired illustrations; signed by the illustrator.

Synopsis

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.
