Since his 1972 trailblazing opus, Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail, Hunter S. Thompson has reported the election story in his truly inimitable, just-short-of-libel style. In Better Than Sex, Thompson hits the dusty trail again - without leaving home - yet manages to deliver a mind-bending view of the 1992 presidential campaign, in all its horror, sacrifice, lust, and dubious glory. Complete with faxes sent to and received from candidate Clinton's top aides, and 100 percent pure gonzo screeds on Richard Nixon, George Bush, and Oliver North, here is the most true-blue campaign tell-all ever penned by man, beast, or Thompson.
Thompson delivers yet another of his trademark cocktail mixes of unbelievable tales and dark observations about the sausage grind that is the U.S. Presidential sweepstakes. Packed with egocentric anecdotes, musings and reprints of memos, faxes, and scrawled handwritten notes...Memorable. -- Los Angeles Daily News

The book also includes Thompson's legendary obituary for his longtime nemesis Richard Nixon.
This just reminds me why American journalism ceased to be relevant after February 5, 2005. Excellent book.
How lovely that he left us with this gift.
