Notes

First edition, first impression. Inscribed by the illustrator on the title page: "Ralph Steadman, Owl Farm, Woody Creek. HST Memorial Blast-Off. 20th August 2005." Steadman were attending the private funeral of his long-time collaborator Hunter S. Thompson, at which Thompson's ashes were packed into firework casings and blasted from a cannon mounted on top of a 47 meter high monument, accompanied by firework and music. Palmer, a noted British director, has written several books and numerous pieces for various periodicals, including The New York Times, The Spectator, and The Observer. In this, his first book, Palmer "takes a penetrating look at the mood of young people at the beginning of the seventies" (front flap blurb). With tipped-in errata note on page 59.
