The father of gonzo journalism takes to the campaign trailSynopsis:
"Better than Sex" is famed political analyst Hunter S. Thompson's groundbreaking and escapading saga of what happens to campaign junkies behind the scenes of a victorious American presidential campaign - their orgies, their despair, and finally their terror when they abandon all hope as the forces of darkness close in and make them prisoners in their own White House, where they cry out like doomed animals. As he does in such classics as "Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72", "Hell's Angels" and "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas", Dr Thompson has again wandered into the savage vortex of political power, and emerged, barely, with this bizarre tale of life within the Belly of the Great American Beast. This book drags you into Mr Bill's Neighbourhood, a world full of fear that stretches from the White House to Hollywood, where power-crazed monsters like Oliver North seize control of a nation and wallow unashamed in a Palace of Power where the only governing ethic is raw lust under a President who Thompson describes as having "the loyalty of a lizard with its tail broken off and the midnight taste of a man who'd double-date with the Revd Jimmy Swaggert".It is an ugly and disillusioning spectacle, one that only the merciful death of Richard M. Nixon explored here in all its glorious symbolism - could defuse.
