I never would have become a writer were it not for On the Road.
by Jerry Cimino
Hunter S. Thompson started reading Jack Kerouac in 1958. I saw Hunter speak on a few occasions. One time on stage at NYU in 1994 at a Beat Generation Conference he said, “I was convinced what I was writing was too far out there to ever find a publisher. After I read On The Road I realized if Kerouac could find someone to publish that book then I could find a publisher, too.”
Next thing we know Hunter is firing up a bowl live and onstage in NYU’s auditorium. It was an outrageous act to do such a thing in a public space in 1994 and the large crowd cheered mightily in appreciation.
Hunter’s breakout novel Hell’s Angels was released in 1967. His most famous was Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas in 1971. Here’s a chance to own a beautiful First Edition of either or both. And for newsletter recipients only we’re offering a 25% discount code. This code expires
