Book summary

A wild ride to the dark side of Americana.  Hunter S. Thompsons and Ralph Steadmans most eccentric book
The Curse of Lono is to Hawaii what Fear and Loathing was to Las Vegas: the crazy tales of a journalists coverage of a news event that ends up being a wild ride to the dark side of Americana. Originally published in 1983, The Curse of Lono features all of the zany, hallucinogenic wordplay and feral artwork for which the Hunter S. Thompson/Ralph Steadmanduo became known and loved.

This curious book, considered an oddity among Hunters Suvre, was long out of print, prompting collectors to search high and low for an original copy. TASCHENs signed, limited edition sold out before the book even hit the storesthis unlimited version, in a different, smaller format, makes The Curse of Lono accessible to everyone.
