About the Author

Hunter S. Thompson was born in Louisville, Kentucky, in 1937 and died in Colorado in 2005. He contributed regularly to a wide variety of publications but is probably best known for his work as national-affairs correspondent for Rolling Stone, in which Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and Fear and Loathing: On the Campaign Trail ’72 originally appeared. He originated “gonzo journalism,” in which the reporter is a part of the story. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas was made into a major motion picture, directed by Terry Gilliam and starring Johnny Depp.
