Writer John Kaye On Hunter S. Thompson, Muhammad Ali, and New Orleans
Submitted by: lalapancakes⚫ 9 months ago
"Where the Buffalo Roam" screenwriter, John Kaye shares pieces of his memoir in the mad styles of Hunter S.T. on one of my favorite literary sites, the Los Angeles Review of Books. The memoir covers all the greats from Kaye's own unique experience like Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier, his friend -- Hunter S. Thompson, a coked up cheating married hotel clerk, a sober travel agent, the word “colored,” and another word I just learned -- ‘truculent.’ This one will require a considerable amount of time and commitment. It’s easily a 45-minute read so buckle up.
