Hello bibliophiles, Quintin Fortune here, and have you ever taken drugs? I mean the fun drugs. Pot. Smack. Meth. Pills. Uppers. Downers.
Don’t worry, I won’t tell your parents. Unless your parents are reading this to you, in which case: what are you? Five? The reason I ask this is because if you haven’t taken drugs, you will have no idea what the hell’s going on in ‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas’ by Hunter S. Thompson. But, if you’ve ever been laid out on a pool table with your pants on your head reading a Pig Latin version of the Magna Carta out of the stars, you’ll know exactly what’s going on.
