Publisher's Summary

Hunter S. Thompson pioneered Gonzo journalism - but there would be no Gonzo without the artist Ralph Steadman, Thompson’s longtime friend and co-conspirator. Steadman’s illustrations for stories like "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" defined their freaked-out feel. Kurt Andersen also talks with author-illustrator Shaun Tan, whose beautiful picture books have a vaguely menacing undercurrent. Plus, the journalist Ron Suskind explains how Disney characters helped him communicate with his autistic son. [Broadcast Date: August 9, 2014]
