Thompson's articles published in Rolling Stone, including a wealth of never before seen correspondence and internal memos from his storied tenure there.?Buy the ticket, take the ride,? was a favorite slogan of Hunt... more »er S. Thompson, and it pretty much defined both his work and his life. Jann S. Wenner, the outlaw journalist?s friend and editor for nearly thirty-five years, has assembled articles that begin with Thompson?s infamous run for sheriff of Aspen on the Freak Party ticket in 1970 and end with his final piece on the Bush-Kerry showdown of 2004. In between is Thompson?s remarkable coverage of the 1972 presidential campaign and plenty of attention paid to Richard Nixon; encounters with Muhammad Ali, Bill Clinton, and the Super Bowl; and a lengthy excerpt from his acknowledged masterpiece, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
