Description

RALPH STEADMAN ***
talk & slideshow for "The Joke’s Over"
Thursday, November 2 at 7:00 pm

In 1970, artist Ralph Steadman came to America in search of work - and found more than he bargained for. He met writer Hunter S. Thompson, and their working relationship resulted in gonzo journalism. Steadman's "The Joke’s Over" tells of a remarkable collaboration that documented the turbulent 70s, and details a friendship filled with both betrayal and under­standing.

Ralph Steadman has illustrated many books, including Hunter S. Thompson’s "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas." He is the author of "The Grapes of Ralph" (for which he won a Glenfiddich Food & Drink Award) and other books. Ralph Steadman will be joining us from his home in England. Don't miss this once in a lifetime event.

*** This Booksmith sponsored event will take place at the Park Branch Library (1833 Page Street) in San Francisco.
