Journalist turns Author
Famous for his book Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas Hunter also produced other books.
I recently read The Rum Diary which seems semi-autobiographical. Basically a mental journalist gets a job in San Juan (steamy heat of Puerto Rico) for the paper 'Daily News'. You meet several vagrant journalists who are crazy drunks and on the verge of quitting and it touches on the political climate of Latin America.
And, full of imagery to take further within my design work (especially those sexy trunks!)
