Editorial Reviews


"Readers will be privy to never-before-published letters from Hunter Thompson, deepening insight into the turning point in his career and emergence into Gonzo" - Bernie Nelson, The MindQuest Review

"Keep This Quiet offers an illuminating look at Hunter S. Thompson in full throttle trying to make it as a Top Notch prose-stylist. Harrell fills in many important biographical gaps. A welcome addition to what is becoming the HST cottage industry. Read it" - Douglas Brinkley, editor of The Proud Highway and Fear and Loathing in America. 

"KEEP THIS QUIET! a memoir: My Relationship with Hunter S. Thompson, Milton Klonsky, and Jan Mensaert by Margaret A. Harrell is a masterpiece! I never expected to say that about a memoir" - Ron Whitehead, outlaw poet

"If you want to know what the Sixties were really like, read Keep This Quiet: A Memoir. It's all there: the openness, the hope, the ideals, the risks, the highs and lows, the travel, the love" -Robert Morgan, author of Gap Creek and Terroir

"Harrell beautifully tells the story of how her relationships with the three men, predominantly Thompson, progressed, sharing intimate moments and keeping the reader turning the page" - Portland Book Review

From the Author

Hunter begins practically his first letter to me - about Hell's Angels - like this: "It is now four hours and twenty minutes past the midnight hour deadine for my leaving ths house but I'm still here, sitting in a heap of boxes and debris....working on this, my final effort on what now appears to be a doomed book." Yes, that was Hell's Angels. We all know how the story ended, but there's a story there - a Gonzo one - in getting the manscript past the deadline, over the wire, and into the book pages. That's the story of Keep This Quiet! The real close-up, inside look at Hunter in those days. Some commenter on Hell's Angels raise such questions as how much the stomping affected the perspective of the book. Questions like that are answered in Keep This Quiet! In this case, none. Not one bit. The manuscript was already turned in. It was the usual situation for Hunter: Hold the presses!!! There's been a development. And we did.
