Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas | 1971, first edition alongside the original revised screenplay.

£2,500.00 GBP

Delighted to present a bumper offering of the first edition of Hunter S. Thompson's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, alongside the original production used revised screenplay (script) for the cult classic film of the same name.

Musing on the collapse of the 60s dream in a drug induced haze ,Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is a truly ‘savage journey to the heart of the American Dream’ and has gone on to become a cult classic in 20th-century American literature. Famously brought to the big screen with Terry Gilliam in the director’s chair, Johnny Depp as Raoul Duke (Thompson) and Benicio Del Toro standing (or falling!) as his attorney.
