Summary
"An intimate, close-up portrait of Hunter S. Thompson, fearless outlaw journalist. Juan Thompson tells the story of his father and of their getting to know each other during their forty-one fraught years together. He writes of the many dark times, of how far they ricocheted away from each other, and of how they found their way back before it was too late."--
