Summary
In 1971 journalist Raoul Duke barrels towards Las Vegas to cover a motorcycle race, accompanied by a turnkload of contraband and his slightly unhinged Samoan attorney, Dr Gonzo. But what is ostensibly a cut-and-dried journalistic endeavour quickly descends into a feverish psychedelic odyssey and an excoriating dissection of the American way of life
