If you haven't read this one before, don't worry, it's a hard one to track down--literally. In and out of print since 1983, The Curse of Lono
periodically returns to be devoured by the masses, like the titular Hawaiian deity. Herein, we find the good doctor on a savage romp through our 50th state of the union, leading his last true charge in ultimate Gonzo fashion. I like to think of Lono
as Gonzo journalism's grotesque self portrait, completed just before being relegated to the realm of caricature. While HST is in top form throughout, the real star of the show is Ralph Steadman, the incomparable who populates the pages with some of his most gloriously twisted renderings--in full, triumphant color! This gorgeous edition is one to snatch up before Lono goes away again.
