A wild ride to dark Americana - Hunter S. Thompson’s and Ralph Steadman’s most eccentric book

A wild ride to dark Americana

Hunter S. Thompson’s and Ralph Steadman’s most eccentric book

The Curse of Lono

New edition, only US$ 29.99
Original edition US$ 59.99
Edition: English
Availability: In Stock
The Curse of Lono is to Hawaii what Fear and Loathing was to Las Vegas: a journalist’s news event “coverage” that ends up an unclassifiable twist of fiction and reportage, myth and crazed surrealism. Featuring all of the zany, hallucinogenic wordplay and feral artwork for which the Hunter S. Thompson/Ralph Steadman duo became known and loved, the book was at once their exemplary and most eccentric output.

The original edition of The Curse of Lono, published 1983, had long been out of print when TASCHEN brought out a signed, limited re-edition almost a decade ago. The book sold out before it even hit the stores. Now available as a standard TASCHEN edition, this fresh, smaller format, makes the gonzo masterpiece accessible to everyone.
  • The Curse of Lono is the oddball child, an unclassifiable mix of fiction, reportage, mythologies and manic surrealism.”

    — The Independent, London
  • “The book is a must-have for his fans.”

    — Los Angeles Magazine, Los Angeles
  • “… 208 pages of Gonzo brilliance…”
