Gets it all in: the boozing and drugging . . . but also the intelligence, the loyalty, the inherent decency. Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post

In Outlaw Journalist, the famous inventor of Gonzo journalism is portrayed as never before. Through in-depth interviews with Thompsons associates, William McKeen gets behind the drinking and the drugs to show the man and the writerone who was happy to be considered an outlaw and for whom the calling of journalism was life.16 pages of photographs
