Hunter S. Thompson’s Widow to Author (Another) Book About Late Husband

June 3rd, 2008 at 8:53 am

Anita Thompson, widow of late great scribe/cultural icon/all-around-fiend Hunter S. Thompson, is set to publish a book about the final years of her famous husband’s life.

Which is great.

I love Hunter S. Thompson. But this latest publication, Ancient Gonzo Wisdom by Anita Thompson, is following pretty close on the heels of the not-too-long-ago-published The Gonzo Way by Anita Thompson.

Is the HST market becoming a bit over saturated? There’s also the not-too-long-ago-published Ralph Steadman memoir, The Joke’s Over, and Gonzo: The Life of Hunter S. Thompson.

I just wouldn’t want anyone to get tired of HST.

Great writers are captivating in large doses. Treacherous beasts are best in small doses. So one must tread carefully with HST.

  1. Nice points, but I think this one is going to be completely different. It seems like it is going to be The Good Doc’s words, through spoken interviews (and i guess published ones), as edited by Anita. I highly doubt it is going to be another memoir, I just think she is editing Hunter’s interviews into a book form.
