About the book: The Curse of Lono is to Hawaii what Fear and Loathing was to Las Vegas: the crazy tales of a journalist’s “coverage” of a news event that ends up being a wild ride to the dark side of Americana. First published in 1983, The Curse of Lono is a gonzo masterwork, mixing Hunter S.Thompson’s hallucinogenic writing with the splattery illustration of Ralph Steadman.
