New York: Coward, McCann & Geoghegan (1975). Uncorrected proof. A couple of small smudges or spots on the wrappers, else just about fine. Ownership Signature of Hunter S. Thompson on the front blank. Typed Letter Signed from Senior Editor Peggy Brooks to Thompson sending the proof and soliciting a blurb from him. Ultimately the book appeared with blurbs from Alison Lurie and Doris Grumbach, with nary a word from Thompson as near as we can tell, although he obviously saw fit to write his name in it. Kennedy and Thompson met in San Juan, Puerto Rico in 1960 and became lifelong friends after a series of acidic letter between the pair resulting from Kennedy's rejection of Thompson, who had applied for a position at the English-language newspaper where Kennedy was managing editor. Thompson turned his time as a young writer struggling in San Juan into his first novel, The Rum Diary, which was written in the early 1960's but not published until 1998. The first book in Kennedy's celebrated Albany cycle, with a notable association.
