The Joke's Over: Bruised Memories: Gonzo, Hunter S. Thompson, and Me

by Ralph Steadman

The Joke's Over: Bruised Memories: Gonzo, Hunter S. Thompson, and Me Cover

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the spring of 1970, artist Ralph Steadman went to America in search of work and found more than he bargained for when he met Hunter S. Thompson at the Kentucky Derby. Their remarkable collaboration resulted in the now-legendary Gonzo Journalism, which would document the civil rights movement, the Nixon administration, Watergate, and the many bizarre and great events that shaped the second half of the twentieth century. When Thompson committed suicide in 2005, it was the end of a unique friendship filled with both betrayal and understanding. A rollicking, no-holds-barred memoir, The Jokes Over is the definitive inside story of the Gonzo years.
