Synopsis: A wild ride to the dark side of Americana
Hunter S. Thompson s and Ralph Steadman s most eccentric book
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. Originally published in 1983, The Curse of Lono 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 uvre, was long out of print, prompting collectors to search high and low for an original copy. TASCHEN s signed, limited edition sold out before the book even hit the stores this unlimited version, in a different, smaller format, makes The Curse of Lono accessible to everyone.
About the Author:
Ralph Steadman is best known for his collaborations with Hunter S. Thompson. He is also a printmaker (his prints include a series of etchings on writers from William Shakespeare to William Burroughs). His own books include the lives of Sigmund Freud and Leonardo da Vinci and The Big I Am, the story of God.
Legendary author Hunter S. Thompson (1937-2005) developed a style of writing about American life and politics that was so acerbic and over-the-top, it earned its own nickname: gonzo journalism. His magazine articles and books of which he penned nearly a dozen, including Hell's Angels, The Rum Diary, Songs for the Doomed, The Great Shark Hunt, and the monumental Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas influenced a generation of writers and established his voice as an essential part of America s socio-political fabric. Portrayed on the silver screen by Bill Murray (Where the Buffalo Roam, 1980) and Johnny Depp (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, 1998), Thompson was a wild character whose persona was inseparable from his often semi-autobiographical writing. True to his image, he once said, "I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me."
