About This Item

New York: HARCOURT, 2006. Book. Illus. by STEADMAN, RALPH. Fine. Hardcover. First Edition. HB - 1st. Print - FINE/FINE - "Few people knew Hunter S. Thompson as well as Ralph Steadman did. In this no-holds-barred memoir, Steadman tells his remarkable story for the first time, vividly recounting the rollicking escapades of two important chroniclers of the counter-culture."....

Synopsis

In the spring of 1970, artist Ralph Steadman went to America in search of work and found more than he bargained for. At the Kentucky Derby he met a former associate of the Hell’s Angels, one Hunter S. Thompson. Their working relationship resulted in the now-legendary Gonzo Journalism.   The Joke’s Over tells of a remarkable collaboration that documented the turbulent years of the civil rights movement, the Nixon years, Watergate, and the many bizarre and great events that shaped the second half of the twentieth century. When Thompson committed suicide in 2005, it was the end of a unique friendship filled with both betrayal and under­standing.  A rollicking, no-holds-barred memoir, The Joke’s Over is the definitive inside story of the Gonzo years.
