Hunter S. Thompson “Hallucinations are bad enough. But after awhile you learn to cope with things like seeing your dead grandmother crawling up your leg with a knife in her teeth. Most acid fanciers can handle this sort of thing. But nobody can handle that other trip-the possibility that any freak with $1.98 can walk into the Circus-Circus and suddenly appear in the sky over downtown Las Vegas twelve times the size of God, howling anything that comes into his head. No, this is not a good town for psychedelic drugs.” (1)

Although rooted in actual events, the zany, drug-fueled descriptions of America's Hyperreal playground Las Vegas are too surreal to be nonfictional. Following Raoul (Thompson) and Dr.Gonzo (Attorney Oscar Zeta Acosta) and their “trips” through the city, many consider the novel to be the best description of the post-1960's era. Fortunately, it also inspired a generation of authors and journalists alike to write in Thompson's idiosyncratic 'Gonzo' style. (2)

This cultural juggernaut by gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson tells the story of Raoul Duke's drug-induced pursuit of the American Dream. Inspired by Thompson's own outrageous exploits as a journalist, the novel's exploration of the 1960s counterculture movement secures its place as a seminal piece of post-modern literature in America.
