Better Than Sex: Confessions Of A Political Junkie
Since his 1972 trailblazing opus, Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail, Hunter S. Thompson has reported the election story in his truly inimitable, just-short-of-libel style.
In Better than Sex, Thompson hits the dusty trail again--without leaving home--yet manages to deliver a mind-bending view of the 1992 presidential campaign--in all of its horror, sacrifice, lust, and dubious glory. Complete with faxes sent to and received by candidate Clinton's top aides, and 100 percent pure gonzo screeds on Richard Nixon, George Bush, and Oliver North, here is the most true-blue campaign tell-all ever penned by man or beast.
"[Thompson] delivers yet another of his trademark cocktail mixes of unbelievable tales and dark observations about the sausage grind that is the U.S. presidential sweepstakes. Packed with egocentric anecdotes, musings and reprints of memos, faxes and scrawled handwritten notes. Memorable." -Los Angeles Daily News
"What endears Hunter Thompson to anyone who reads him is that he will say what others are afraid to ... [He] is a master at the unlikely but invariably telling line that sums up a political figure ... In a year when all politics is--to much of the public--a tendentious and pompous bore, it is time to read Hunter Thompson." -Richmond Times-Dispatch
