Die legendären Gonzo-Reportagen erstmals auf Deutsch Mit seinen Gonzo Papers wurde Hunter S. Thompson zu einem der bedeutendsten Schriftsteller Amerikas. Dieser einmalige Band versammelt jetzt erstmals die besten Reportagen und Artikel aus vier Jahrzehnten schonungslosem Journalismus. Ein absolutes Muss für alle Thompson-Fans! Mit dem Tod von Hunter S. Thompson verlor die Welt nicht nur ihren wohl unbestechlichsten, schonungslosesten und scharfzüngigsten Reporter, sondern auch einen Schriftsteller, der zu den ganz Großen der amerikanischen Literatur gezählt werden muss. Wie niemand vor ihm ging er mit den Verfehlungen, der Doppelmoral und der bigotten Heuchelei der westlichen Gesellschaft ins Gericht. Dieser Band vereint die besten Reportagen des genialen Erfinders des Gonzo-Journalismus aus vier Jahrzehnten unermüdlichen Kampfes gegen ein korruptes, verlogenes System. Von vorderster Front aus berichtet Thompson über die Missstände, denen er auf seinen unzähligen Reisen begegnet. Drogen, Politik, Armut – seine Nachrichten vom Rande des Abgrunds sind aufrüttelnd, erschütternd, aber auch hellsichtig, ätzend komisch und der Beweis für Thompsons großes schriftstellerisches Können.

Als der legendäre Autor Walker Reade eine Assistentin sucht, wittert sie ihre Chance.

Monatelang versucht sie, einen Text aus ihm herauszuholen. Aber nach einer Weile wird ihr klar, dass sie hier in den Bergen einem drogenabhängigen Literaten ausgeliefert ist, der vermutlich nie wieder einen Roman schreiben wird. Cheryl della Pietra, einst Assistentin von Hunter S. Thompson, gibt einen ungeschönten Einblick in die Literaturszene und zeichnet das faszinierende Porträt eines literarischen Genies.

"KATZEN HABEN PERSONAL" – Auch wenn es wissenschaftlich nicht bestätigt ist, ist dieser Satz gentechnischer Bestandteil der Muttermilch bei Katzen. Manchmal etwas mehr, manchmal etwas weniger. Bei Gizmo und Gonzo allerdings könnte man meinen, es sei ein Hauptmerkmal ihrer Rassebeschreibung. Die beiden sind nämlich echte LaPerm-Kater und bilden sich mächtig etwas darauf ein. Schon bei ihrer Geburt im November 2009 nehmen die beiden Stubentiger das Heft des Lebens in die Hand und lassen keinen Zweifel daran aufkommen, dass sie die wichtigsten Lebewesen auf der Erde sind. Als 12 Wochen später dann auch noch ihre ganz persönlichen Dosenöffner in Form von Boris und Beate in ihr Leben treten, ist das Chaos perfekt. Obwohl Boris und Beate vorher schon Katzen hatten, müssen sich die vier nun jeder Menge Fragen und Situationen stellen, auf die sie nicht vorbereitet waren. Verhungert eine Katze, wenn man den Boden des Napfes sieht? Können Mensch und Katze zusammen handwerkliche Arbeiten erledigen? Ist "Dosenöffner" ein Schimpfwort? Boris Schmidt schildert das tägliche Leben mit Gizmo und Gonzo und seiner Frau als Fotocomic auf freche, lustige und humorvolle Weise, ohne den wichtigsten Aspekt aus den Augen zu verlieren: Ein Zuhause ohne Katze ist eben nur eine Wohnung.

Few American lives are stranger or wilder than that of Hunter S. Thompson. Born a rebel in Kentucky, Thompson spent a lifetime channelling his energy into such landmark works as FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS - and his provocative style revolutionised writing.

From Hell's Angels leader Sonny Barger, to Ralph Steadman, to Jack Nicholson, more than 100 members of Thompson's inner circle bring into vivid focus the life of a man who was more complicated and talented than any previous portrait has shown. It's all here: the creative frenzies, the love affairs, the drugs, booze and guns, and, ultimately, the tragic suicide. As Thompson was fond of saying, "Buy the ticket, take the ride."

The writer Tom Wolfe once described Hunter S. Thompson as the finest comic writer of the 20th century. Thompson was this and more, an apt observer of the American scene for almost four decades, the founding father of Gonzo journalism, and an inspiration to many. Through his writings, Thompson examined the loss of American innocence in the latter part of the 20th century, all the while holding up those deserving of contempt for closer examination and espousing (and exemplifying) what it meant to be a citizen at the end of the American Century. With his death, a vacuum was created that remains to be filled. Anita Thompson explores the legacy of her late husband as a writer and as a citizen, through her own words and through interviews with those who knew him best including Johnny Depp, Ed Bradley, Doug Brinkley, Jack Nicholson, Bill Murray, Senator George McGovern, and others.

Gonzo Republic

Hunter S. Thompson's America

Author: William Stephenson

Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing USA

ISBN: 1441163425

Category: Literary Criticism

Page: 200

View: 2776

Gonzo Republic looks at Hunter S. Thompson's complex relationship with America. Thompson was a patriot but also a stubborn individualist. Stephenson examines the whole range of Thompson's work, from his early reporting from the South American client states of the USA in the 1960s to his twenty-first-century internet columns on sport, politics and 9/11. Stephenson argues that Thompson inhabited, but was to some extent reacting against, the tradition of American individualism begun by the Founding Fathers and continued by Emerson and Thoreau. Thompson sought out the edge-the threshold of chaos and insanity-in order to define himself. His characters enact the same quest, travelling through the surreal landscape of his literary America: the Gonzo Republic.

A Bold Path for Renewing an Ancient Faith

Category: Religion

Page: 192

Here is a book that is both clarion call for a new Jewish agenda and a blueprint for an adventurous but genuine path toward spiritual growth and religious wisdom. Rabbi Niles Elliot Goldstein, founder and Rabbi Emeritus of The New Shul in New York City, says that most conventional Jewish institutions are out-of-touch and have relied too much on nostalgia, guilt, and fear—none of which resonate with modern Jews. He challenges Jews to adopt the "gonzo" spirit—the rebellious, risk-taking attitude associated with the gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson—and to take creative, innovative steps to reshape and revitalize contemporary Judaism. Goldstein urges readers to take a fresh look at Judaism, to become educated about its history and tradition, to discover what is authentic, yet what also feels spiritually relevant and meaningful, and to create a Jewish culture and community rooted in affirmation, joy, and celebration. He provides a wealth of information on numerous organizations, institutions, synagogues, grassroots groups, and networks that can help get you started on the gonzo path.

Step-by-step instructions to building more than 30 fascinating devices are included in this book for workbench warriors and grown-up geeks. Detailed illustrations and diagrams explain how to construct a simple radio with a soldering iron, a few basic circuits, and three shiny pennies. Instructions are included for a rotary steam engine that requires a candle, a soda can, a length of copper tubing, and just 15 minutes. To use optics to roast a hot dog, no electricity or stove is required, just a flexible plastic mirror, a wooden box, a little algebra, and a sunny day. Also included are experiments most science teachers probably never demonstrated, such as magnets that levitate in midair, metals that melt in hot water, a Van de Graaff generator made from a pair of empty soda cans, and lasers that transmit radio signals. Every experiment is followed by an explanation of the applicable physics or chemistry.

Bristling with inspired observations and wild anecdotes, this collection offers unique insight into the voice and mind of the inimitable Hunter S. Thompson, as recorded over the decades in the pages of Playboy, the Paris Review, Esquire, in various lectures, and in television appearances, many in print for the first time. Fearless and unsparing, the interviews detail some of the most storied episodes of Thompson’s life: his savage beating at the hands of the Hell’s Angels, his talking football with Nixon on the 1972 Campaign Trail (‘the only time in twenty years of listening to the treacherous bastard that I knew he wasn’t lying’); his razor-sharp insight into the Bush–Cheney administration, his unlikely run for Sheriff of Aspen, and his successful public battle, during the last years of his life, to free an innocent woman from prison. In addition, Hunter Thompson’s passionate tirades about journalism, culture, drugs, guns, and the law showcase his singular voice at its fiercest. Complete with an exclusive introduction by author, journalist, and cultural critic Christopher Hitchens, Ancient Gonzo Wisdom genuinely embraces the brilliance of Hunter S. Thompson – his life, his voice, and his legacy – to provide an enduring portrait of the great gonzo journalist. ‘Four years after his death, the rapid-fire wit and venom of Thompson’s writing is undiminished. Ancient Gonzo Wisdom features classic HST interviews’ GQ
