Fear and Loathing... was just a little bit too crazy for me!
The Winterson memoir got a bad rap on a local book review show - apparently it's a fairly dishonest mix of truth and fiction.

You should really enjoy The Great Gatsby.
Thompson did a series of Fear and Loathing. The most well known:In Las Vegas, In America, and On The Campaign Trail.
I wish he was still with us...I can't imagine the Fear and Loathing book that would have emerged from this year's Presidential Election. Can almost hear him saying "I predict...bad craziness..." ~laughing~ HST and Gonzo Journalism is kind of an aquired taste. I love it.
