American Literature in Context
Edited by Linda De Roche
This is a four volume reference work, to which I contribute essays on Hunter S. Thompson, Thomas McGuane and Gonzo Journalism.
The essays focus as much on historical and cultural contexts as biographical detail and consider Thompson and McGuane’s significance to the American literary canon.
Here is “The Literary He-Man,” the McGuane essay
Here is “The Prince of Gonzo,” the Thompson essay
Here is “Gonzo: A History”
