Charles’s Rating    

Thompson's one and only novel, based largely upon his experiences as a reporter in 60's San Juan. In fact, we have Johnny Depp to thank for this gem. Depp discovered the manuscript in Thompson's basement when he was living with him doing research for "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas". He read it and urged Thompson to publish it. Eventually, he relented. Thompson\'s writing is electric. You feel like you are right there walking the hot tarmac with Kemp. This book inspired my trip to Puerto Rico.
