Shelves: literature , usa I guess I should explain the rating to those of you who would argue that this is Thompson's weakest work, and therefore undeserving of praise In this particular story, he still has to worry about going broke, getting stuck somewhere without hope or help, and potentially watching his dreams smash against the rocks like a heavily polluted ocean wave. Though much of this narrative is fic I guess I should explain the rating to those of you who would argue that this is Thompson's weakest work, and therefore undeserving of praise Though much of this narrative is fiction, the situation career, location, finances of the protagonist come from HST's own experiences in Puerto Rico. Thompson articulates within the pages of this story the mindset of the hopeful lost, the starry-eyed cynics of the world, the trouble-making peace hunters like myself, a section of society whose collective voice he succinctly captures within this quote: "Like most others, I was a seeker, a mover, a malcontent, and at times a stupid hell-raiser. I was never idle long enough to do much thinking, but I felt somehow that some of us were making real progress, that we had taken an honest road, and that the best of us would inevitably make it over the top. At the same time, I shared a dark suspicion that the life we were leading was a lost cause, that we were all actors, kidding ourselves along on a senseless odyssey. It was the tension between these two poles - a restless idealism on one hand and a sense of impending doom on the other - that kept me going. Never mind Thompson's hands-off approach to people and their petty squabbles and emotional outbursts his will to survive in relative comfort taking precedence over social niceties, which can make him seem like a stone-cold bastard sometimes , and disregarding his mumbled and grumbled asides about what Nazis poor drivers and Puerto Rican policemen are, the man just has this way of describing people in groups or individually that is akin to taking a surgical knife to everything that they stand for. He's a psychoanalyst from hell, and he's damn funny while he's at it: "He was trembling and I offered to drive. He ignored me. He was forever talking about luck, but what he really meant was a very ordered kind of fate.

It's also interesting to see how he improved this full version of the novel from the more raw and racist excerpts found in the collection Songs of the Doomed available on , partly narrated by Thompson.

From Publishers Weekly When the celebrated iconoclast was a feisty kid working for an English-language newspaper in San Juan 40 years ago, he wrote, and then put aside, a novel, which is here resurrected. It is very much a young man's book, clearly based on Thompson's own situation and some of the peopleAmostly drunks and layaboutsAwho gravitated to a loosely supervised journalistic stint in the tropics.

An introduction sets the scene, and the novel that follows is almost equally documentary in tone: young Kemp comes aboard at the News, gets to know its perpetually embattled proprietor and some of his feckless staff.

He observes the island, as the invasion of American tourists and values is just beginning to change its lazy, sun-struck character. He gets involved in a drunken fight with the police, is thrown in jail, bailed out and goes in for a little shame-faced PR writing. He comes between a wild colleague and the equally unbuttoned young Connecticut girl he has brought out to visit him, and the end is a youth's easy-won nostalgia for a silly, drunken time. As he always has done, Thompson lays on the drinking and general hell-raising very thick the amount of rum consumed would dry up a distillery and indulges flashes of bad temper toward commercialism while always showing a willingness to do whatever it takes to make a buck.

His style is less hallucinatory and exclamatory than it later became, but the groundwork is there.
