Songs of the Doomed

Another volume of the so-called “Gonzo Papers”. It’s a grab bag of excerpts, letters, un-published stuff, reminisces, etc.

It’s good. It’s Hunter S. Thompson. But really there has only been one piece in this entire book – an article about the ultra-wealthy in Florida – that was both something I had not read before and was quite, quite good.

I can’t help but feeling that this does a bad job of hiding what it actually is: a fluffed up excuse to cash in on the name and image of The Good Doctor.

Enjoyable for fans, probably not worth it otherwise.
