Kingdom of Fear (Hunter S. Thompson) (Popular Penguins) (image)

Kingdom of Fear by Hunter S. Thompson

Penguin Books, 2008 (Popular Penguins series)

"Hunter S. Thompson's Kingdom of Fear is the wild and outrageous autobiography from the world's most notorious journalist. It's an unrestrained and uncensored account of fast living, hard drinking, sharp writing and unimaginable drug taking; of road trips, girls, guns, bikes and being accused of trying to kill Jack Nicholson. Kingdom of Fear is both personal and political; an explosive life story and a no-holds-barred assassination of contemporary America." -- Publisher blurb

Series Note:
"Never judge a book by its cover. As sayings go, it's one of the most famous, but publishing giant Penguin has turned the mantra on its head this summer.

Anybody who has set foot inside a bookshop in the past few months will almost certainly have seen the retro orange and cream design of its Popular Penguin range — a low-budget collection that has become a publishing sensation in Australia."
