Generation of Swine: Tales of Shame and Degradation in the '80's | [Hunter S. Thompson]

Generation of Swine: Tales of Shame and Degradation in the '80's

Here, against a backdrop of late-night tattoo sessions and soldier-of-fortune trade shows, Dr. Thompson is at his apocalyptic best - covering emblematic events such as the 1987-88 presidential campaign, with Vice President George Bush, Sr., fighting for his life against Republican competitors like Alexander Haig, Pat Buchanan, and Pat Robertson; detailing the GOP's obsession with drugs and drug abuse; while at the same time capturing momentous social phenomena as they occurred, like the rise of cable, satellite TV, and CNN - 24 hours of mainline news.

Publisher's Summary

Generation of Swine, the second volume of the legendary Dr. Hunter S. Thompson's best-selling Gonzo Papers, was first published in 1988 and is now back in print. Here, against a backdrop of late-night tattoo sessions and soldier-of-fortune trade shows, Dr. Thompson is at his apocalyptic best - covering emblematic events such as the 1987-88 presidential campaign, with Vice President George Bush, Sr., fighting for his life against Republican competitors like Alexander Haig, Pat Buchanan, and Pat Robertson; detailing the GOP's obsession with drugs and drug abuse; while at the same time capturing momentous social phenomena as they occurred, like the rise of cable, satellite TV, and CNN - 24 hours of mainline news. Showcasing his inimitable talent for social and political analysis, Generation of Swine is vintage Thompson - eerily prescient, incisive, and enduring.

    Any additional comments?

    Scott Sowers' performance is great. It's not HST's voice at all, but it certainly adds to the experience. Again.It may come as a surprise, but Thompson was not a fan of the Reagan administration. If you haven't read HST, then this is not the place to start. Try Hell's Angels or Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas first. If you've gotten this far, you'll know what to expect.

    Buy the ticket, take the ride.
