The definitive biography of the man who Tom Wolfe called “the century’s greatest comic writer,” Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson focuses on the good doctor’s heyday—from 1965 to 1975. Fueled by a raging libido, Wild Turkey and superhuman doses of drugs, Thompson was a true “free lance”: goring sacred cows with impunity, hilarity and a steel-eyed conviction for writing wrongs. Gonzo is entirely narrated by the words of Thompson himself, from his letters, articles and books and read—on camera and off—by Johnny Depp.
