Steadman's Testament to Thompson, Light ON Hyperbole, Is both Fitting and Touching. PRAISE FOR THE JOKE'S OVER "Hunter Thompson's marvelously deranged illustrator, Ralph Steadman, gives us a terrific memoir with The Joke's Over. His testament to Thompson, light on hyperbole, is both fitting and touching. I bought this book because I am a fan of both Hunter Thompson and Ralph Steadman since the 70s. There have been few write/illustrator teams that have been better matched in literary history - a near perfect pair is such a demented and twisted way.

Excellent book describing what it is like to be on the leading edge of a new form of anything.Very informative and entertaining information on 2 people I grew up reading and admiring.

What a candid look back on an extrordinary and, at times, very trying friendship. We could all use friends such as Ralph, people who could put up with our worst sides and then still be able to look back on us with some measure of affection.

If you are an HST fan, you must read this book. This is one book that fills in the blanks, the behind the scenes info that you always wonder about after reading HST. We now know as much of the picture as we're ever going to.

I do hope that I am able to meet Ralph Steadman before it's his time. I missed that chance with HST, but with this book you will feel as though you were there the entire time.

Bravo!

Mr. Steadman tells it like it is, even when there is obvious animosity between himself and HST. Some great pictures I hadn't seen before, although I wish they had been reproduced full page size. The stories are good and give some interesting insight into (attempting) to work with HST. Overall a good read, if you're a fan of either of the men you will enjoy this book and be glad it is in your personal library. To no fault of Mr. Steadman, reading this book did bum me out a bit that we have no more new HST work to read ever again. I still remember turning on the news that fateful February morning...

Entertaining memoir of Steadman's time with Hunter S. Thompson as his illustrator/cartoonist. Some insights into the weirdness and sheer ballsiness of HST - it was a strange ride. HIghly recommended.

I'm going to miss the good doctor. Hunter S. Thompson, with his faithful English mad man gave us the ultimate in gonzo journalism. This is Ralph's side of the love/hate partnership they shared. For the most part, he does a good job. There are some rants and he pulls off some of his own scabs from life with Hunter. The artwork is first rate and of course, that is what Ralph does best. Still, all in all, it was a good read and I recommend it for anyone who has ever been the sidekick of a huge ego or savagely bludgeoned by the wierd that has gone pro.
Good condition
