Gonzo journalism at its best as Hunter S. Thompson surveys the political landscape of the early 80s in search of the lost American dream. Generation of Swine: Gonzo Papers Vol. 2: Tales of Shame and Degradation in the ‘80s, reads like a collection of his journals and writings from this famed writers. Hunter puts together a collection of his writings and thoughts that delve on subjects all across the spectrum. Reading this book close to 25 years after its publication gives you a yearning for a simpler time. No war, out of control deficits or a broken partisan system existed at that time. He ends with his disdain of Daddy Bush, but covers the whole spectrum of the happenings of the bubble gum pop Gipper lead era.
