A wild ride to dark Americana: Hunter S. Thompson s and Ralph Steadman s most eccentric book The Curse of Lonois to Hawaii whatFear and Loathingwas to Las Vegas: a journalist s news event coverage that ends up an unclassifiable twist of fiction and reportage, myth and crazed surrealism.
Featuring all of the zany, hallucinogenic wordplay and feral artwork for which theHunter S.
Thompson/Ralph Steadman duo became known and loved, the book was at once their exemplary and most eccentric output.
The original edition ofThe Curse of Lono, published 1983, had long been out of print when TASCHEN brought out a signed, limited re-edition almost a decade ago.
The book sold out before it even hit the stores. Now available as a standard TASCHEN edition, this fresh, smaller format, makes the gonzo masterpiece accessible to everyone."
