Just when the compounding deaths of Ingmar Bergman and Michelangelo Antonioni were making the world appear bleaker than life in Cormac McCarthy’s “The Road,” there is news that Hunter S. Thompson’s widow has written a book about him.
Wouldn’t you? You fuck, and eat, and do drugs with one of the era’s most relevant and exciting writers, how could you not have a few anecdotes to share with the world?I’m not sure about “Gonzo Way,” though. Kinda cheesy. And I’m not sure I want to “celebrate” him as much as I want to drink and revel as much as he did in “memory” of him. And maybe blow some shit up.
