American Literature in Context

Edited by Linda De Roche

ABC-Clio, 2019

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”
