Hunter S. Thompson's Widow Book Signing @ Book Soup Tomorrow

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

When Hunter S. Thompson passed away he left behind a widow who knew him unlike any other person on earth. She wrote a book about it, and crammed it full of the juicy goodness that every HST fan has a never ending jonez for.

In The Gonzo Way, Anita Thompson interviews Hunter's old friends including Johnny Depp, Ed Bradley, Doug Brinkley, Jack Nicholson, Bill Murray, Senator George McGovern to name a few. She will also in her own words explore Hunter S. Thompson the man, the myth, the husband.

Anita Thompson will be presenting and signing her book The Gonzo Way at Book Soup tomorrow 08/09/2007 at 7pm. If you can't get enough Hunter S. Thompson then you should come down and pay respect to the lady who put up with him the most. Or buy the damn thing on, and snub the lady. LAist just thought you would want to know.
