Patsy has picked a really great book for her next Chapter 1 Book Club meeting on Tuesday, April 12 at 6 p.m. at the Pearl Public Library.
Kingdom of Fear: Loathsome Secrets of a Star-Crossed Child in the Final Days of the American Century is by journalist Hunter S. Thompson. It's a lively recounting of Thompson's hard-driven life as a rebel who marched to the beat of his own drum. Thompson is credited with creating "Gonzo journalism" a personalized style of reporting that puts the writer at the center of the story.
Thompson was born in Louisville, KY on July 18, 1937. His life included a frequent use of drugs and a passion for firearms. Suffering from health problems, and depression Thompson committed suicide in 2005. He was 67.
