[SOLD] Hunter S Thompson and Ralph Steadman – The Curse of Lono – 1983
Softback, Bantam, 1983. First edition, 2nd impression.
A hard-to-find account of Thompson’s experiences in Hawaii. The book had a very limited print run in 1983 and was then republished in 2005. This is one of the original printings.
“A wild ride to the dark side of Americana, The Curse of Lono is to Hawaii what Fear and Loathing was to Las Vegas: the crazy tales of a journalist’s “”coverage”” of a news event that ends up being a wild ride to the dark side of Americana.
“Curse features all of the zany, hallucinogenic wordplay and feral artwork for which the Hunter S. Thompson/Ralph Steadman duo became known and loved. This curious book, considered an oddity among Hunter’s oeuvre, was long out of print, prompting collectors to search high and low for an original copy.”
Condition as-new with small marks to back cover where previous price label removed.
