Originally published in 1979, the first volume of the bestselling Gonzo Papers is now back in print. The Great Shark Hunt is Dr. Hunter S. Thompson's largest and, arguably, most important work, covering Nixon to napalm, Las Vegas to Watergate, Carter to cocaine. These essays offer brilliant commentary and outrageous humor, in signature Thompson style. Thompson's razor-sharp insight and crystal clarity capture the crazy, hypocritical, degenerate and redeeming aspects of the explosive and colorful '60s and '70s.

The Great Shark Hunt offers myriad, highly charged entries, including the first Hunter S. Thompson piece to be dubbed gonzo—"The Kentucky Derby Is Decadent and Depraved," which appeared in Scanlan's Monthly in 1970. From this essay a new journalistic movement sprang which would change the shape of American letters. Paperback, 624 pages.
