Leave a Trail

  • Many of the stories were written during a two-year flurry in the early 1950s, and they leave a trail of scorched towns and psyches from California to New York to Mexico, not just the Dust Bowl flatlands where Thompson's populist fires were stoked. Applying our modern filter, it is difficult to connect Thompson's psychopaths, grifters, drug addicts and serial murderers with farmhands clapping to Woody Guthrie songs around a campfire.
