On the Horizon: Conversation with Hunter S. Thompson

The latest addition to UPM's Literary Conversation Series is a collection of interviews with Hunter S. Thompson. This book will be available in June.

Conversations with Hunter S. Thompson is the first compilation of selected personal interviews that traces the trajectory of his prolific and much-publicized career.

Throughout his career Thompson has displayed an uncanny flair for inserting himself into the epicenter of major sociopolitical events of our generation. His audacious, satirical, ranting screeds on American culture have been widely read and admired. Whether in books, essays, or collections of his correspondence, his raging and incisive voice and writing style are unmistakable.

Conversations with Hunter S. Thompson is edited by Beef Torrey and Kevin Simonson. This book will be available from UPM in June.
