Hunter S. Thompson Gonzo introduction by Johnny Depp biography by Ben Corbett edited by Steve Crist and Laila Nabulsi $17.95
Published as a result of popular demand, this smaller-sized and affordably priced literary edition of GONZO features a compelling new biography on Hunter S. Thompson by acclaimed writer Ben Corbett.
GONZO was AMMO Books' debut release, which was met with great press and extraordinary reviews. This book was a labor of love that was created during a period of several years by AMMO Books publisher Steve Crist with Hunter S. Thompson's full cooperation prior to his untimely death. In fact, it was the desire to see this project through in a way that did justice to Hunter's legacy that ultimately started our publishing house.
GONZO presents a rare look into the life of this literary legend, whose groundbreaking style of "gonzo" journalism made him one of the greatest writers of his generation. Now, for the first time, his photographs and archives have been collected into a visual biography worthy of his literary legacy. With a heartfelt introduction by Thompson's close friend Johnny Depp, GONZO captures a man whose life was as legendary as his writing.
This impressive title features hundreds of personal photographs—many never-before-published and taken by Thompson himself. Accompanied by writing and memorabilia, this visual history gives insight into the literary icon's life. GONZO chronicles Thompson's numerous adventures, including his early days as a foreign correspondent in Puerto Rico, his life in Big Sur in the sixties, his time on the road with the Hell's Angeles, his seminal Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, his running for sheriff of Pitkin County in 1970, and many personal moments with friends and family throughout the years.
