"What author would you like to have over to your house?
Vonnegut, Hemingway, Angelou? Thanks to the University Press of
Mississippi's Literary Conversations Series, the question is no
longer moot, and you don't even have to make dinner."Chances are,
the contributors whose articles make up these publications have
already asked the same questions that you might and have provided
the insights that you would relish. Fortunately, Conversations
with Hunter S. Thompson is especially rewarding, primarily due
to the flamboyant personality of Thompson himself."--Jackson
"You don't want to miss Richard Keil's white-knuckle account of sitting in the passenger seat with Thompson at the wheel, or the self-styled Doctor's judicious diagnosis (from Ron Rosenbaum's 1977 High Times interview) of Jimmy Carter's mix of Puritanism and libertarianism: 'He'd put me in jail in an instant, if he saw me snorting coke in front of him. He would not, however, follow me into the bathroom and try to catch me snorting it.'"--Columbia Journalism Review
