UBC #25 The Rum Diary by Hunter S. Thompson

The Rum Diary
by Hunter S. Thompson
Simon & Schuster
c1998 Hardcover, 1st Edition/Printing

Everyone with a beard and/or rent under $300/month loves H.S. Thompson. He is a god in some circles. He is The Dude to all Lebowskis. This is his one novel [i think] and [so i've heard] it is not dissimilar to his legendary non-fiction. Thompson wraps you up in a blanket of pessimistic optimism and leaves you on the side of a highway, wet, and a bit gimpy. Read what William Kennedy described as "...the narrative of the wounded meritorious ego, and the indiopathic anger of the righteous outlaw..." ...Dude!
