Here is the private and most intimate correspondence of one of America's most influential and incisive journalists - Hunter S.Thompson. In letters to a who's who of luminaries, from Norman Mailer toCharles Kuralt, Tom Wolfe to Lyndon Johnson, William Styron to Joan Baez - not to mention his mother, the NRA, and a chain of newspaper editors - Thompson vividly catches the tenor of the times in 1960s America and channels it all through hisown razor-sharp perspective.
Passionate in their admiration, merciless in their scorn, and never anything less than fascinating, the dispatches of The Proud Highway offer an unprecedentedand penetrating gaze into the evolution of the most outrageous raconteur/provocateur ever to assault a typewriter.

yes, i would recommend this audiobook to anyone who is interested in hunter s thompson, as it is the closest thing i have read to an autobiography by hunter
it is similar to the fear and loathing at the rolling stone. this book shows a different less drug addled younger hunter
he does a great job of expressing emotions that may not be picked up when reading text
the story of a an unemployable writer
this was a great read for someone like myself who has been a long time hunter fan. i wish i had read this book before many of his other works, as it sheds a lot of light on where he comes from, what he is about, and who he is
