Okay, you lazy bitch: a letter from Hunter S. Thompson

From Letters of Note:

On January 22, 2001, Hunter S. Thompson sent the following expletive-filled fax to Holly Sorensen, then ‘Production Executive’ at indie movie studio The Shooting Gallery. The furious written rant concerned the movie adaptation of Thompson’s novel, The Rum Diary, to which Sorensen’s studio had acquired the rights. Progress had been slow and confused on their part; so slow in fact that Thompson had reached boiling point.


      1. One of my heroes too Andrea! Just saw this for the first time – God Bless HST! With all good wishes, Bob Mitchell (Producer of “The Ginger Man” by JP Donleavy – one of HST’s favorite books). And All Good to Your Good Self! Hope you see this….. Bob
