About the Author

William Stephenson is Senior Lecturer in English at the University of Chester, where he teaches modernist and postmodernist literature. His publications include John Fowles (Northcote, 2003), several book chapters and articles in journals including Critique, Journal of Cultural Research and a/b: Auto/Biography Studies.


"Stephenson is on the money. There is a need for a serious, academic study of Hunter S. Thompson. Stephenson's thematic approach is perfectly suited for the purpose of the book. Though he takes a serious, scholarly approach, Stephenson's writing is extremely accessible. I think Thompson would approve." (William McKeen, Professor and Chair, Journalism Department, Boston University, USA, and author of Outlaw Journalist: The Life and Times of Hunter S. Thompson (W.W. Norton, 2008)."
