“HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN DEAD 20 YEARS AGO!”
—HST’s private physician

“Uproarious fun . . . E. Jean Carroll’s wacko-wanton biography
is the only way to throw a net over the cavorting career of
Doctor Thompson . . . Carroll . . . out-gonzos the master.”

��������������������

“Crisply edited reminiscences of his friends. . . .”

“Carroll’s approach is novel . . . it’s gonzo biography.”
���
���� ���������

“A hilarious version of Sade’s ������� . . . Echoes her wild
subject well, while framing some serious interviews with drug
dealers, politicians, childhood friends and, notably, Thompson’s
ex-wife.”

������������������������

“Her style is as outrageously entertaining as Dr. Gonzo
himself. . . .”

������������

“Carroll’s interviewees—including Thompson’s brother, mother,
ex-girlfriend, ex-wife, colleagues, even George McGovern—
offer many interesting observations on her subject’s alienated
youth, writing style, celebrityhood, behavior and journalistic
influence.”

(and hot-tub companion) E. Jean Carroll.”

“Author E. Jean Carroll tracked down Thompson’s friends,
relatives, and enemies, and got them to talk about the mad
doctor. . . . Though hilariously funny, this book has substance.

indispensable.”

worth it.”

“For Thompson’s fans . . . nothing is going to top E. Jean
Carroll’s �������. . . excellent . . . flashy and well-sustained.”
