    For those of you who've only experienced his fictional works btw, I can highly recommend The Great Shark Hunt and Kingdom of Fear. Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail is very good also, but if you go in thinking it's going to be like Las Vegas you will be very disappointed.

    The Great Shark Hunt is well reading just for the stories of Oscar, his 'Samoan' Attorney and how close to the truth Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is.

    Also, the The Rum Diaries can't have enough love, even though it reminds me more of Graham Greene comedy in style than HST.

    I like to eat breakfast alone, and almost never before noon; anybody with a terminally jangled lifestyle needs at least one psychic anchor every twenty-four hours, and mine is breakfast. In Hong Kong, Dallas, or at home—and regardless of whether or not I have been to bed—breakfast is a personal ritual that can only be properly observed alone, and in a spirit of genuine excess. The food factor should always be massive: four Bloody Marys, two grapefruits, a pot of coffee, Rangoon crêpes, a half-pound of either sausage, bacon, or corned-beef hash with diced chilies, a Spanish omelette or eggs Benedict, a quart of milk, a chopped lemon for random seasoning, and something like a slice of key lime pie, two margaritas and six lines of the best cocaine for dessert…Right, and there should also be two or three newspapers, all mail and messages, a telephone, a notebook for planning the next twenty-four hours, and at least one source of good music…all of which should be dealt with outside, in the warmth of a hot sun, and preferably stone naked.

    Texas, 1979
