Product description

Synopsis

This book drags you into Mr Bill's Neighbourhood, a world full of fear that stretches from the White House to Hollywood, where power-crazed monsters like Oliver North seize control of a nation and wallow unashamed in a Palace of Power where the only governing ethic is raw lust under a President who Thompson describes as having "the loyalty of a lizard with its tail broken off and the midnight taste of a man who'd double-date with the Revd Jimmy Swaggert". It is an ugly and disillusioning spectacle, one that only the merciful death of Richard M. Nixon explored here in all its glorious symbolism - could defuse.

From the Back Cover

From the legendary author of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Better than Sex is famed political analyst Hunter S. Thompson's breathtaking and escapading saga of what happens to campaign junkies behind the scenes of a victorious American presidential campaign.

It drags you into Mr Bill's Neighbourhood, a world that stretches from the White House to Hollywood, where power-crazed monsters like Oliver North seize control of a nation, and where the only governing ethic is raw lust under a President who Thompson describes as having 'the loyalty of a lizard with its tail broken off and the midnight taste of a man who'd double-date with the Rev. Jimmy Swaggart'.

Dr Thompson has again wandered into the savage vortex of political power, and emerged, barely, with this bizarre tale of life within the Belly of the Great American Beast.
