The Curse of Lono
The Curse of Lono | Hunter S. Thompson
5 posts | 8 read | 1 reading | 4 to read
The Curse of Lono is to Hawaii what Fear and Loathing was to Las Vegas: the crazy tales of a journalist's ?coverage? of a news event that ends up being a wild ride to the dark side of Americana. Originally published in 1983, Curse features all of the zany, hallucinogenic wordplay and feral artwork for which the Hunter S. Thompson/Ralph Steadman duo have become known and loved. This curious book, considered an oddity among Hunter's oeuvre, has been long out of print, prompting collectors to search high and low for an original copy. Resurrected by TASCHEN in a bigger size with splendid, full-color illustrations and a foreword by Sean Penn, The Curse of Lono is now available in a special 1000-copy edition, numbered and hand-signed by Thompson and Steadman.

The king of gonzo journalism and home-made banana loaf - two things i did not expect to be mentioning together!

I do love Ralph Steadman's artwork, even better in big hardback.

overtheedge @Mandoul I really liked this, such a great pairing. 1mo
Mandoul Yep totally agree @overtheedge Steadman's style was perfect for Hunter's world! 1mo

I loved this book when I first read it, and still have a soft spot for it. Undeniably not Hunter‘s best writing, but it rises to a higher level when combined with Steadman‘s brilliant and horrifying artwork.

The greatest mania of all is passion: and I am a natural slave to passion. Happy 79th birthday HST. You were wild and wonderful and I wish you were still on this earth to share your passion. 👊🏻 Gonzo for life
