Sample Book Insights:
#1 I was a professional journalist, and I had been given $300 in cash by the sporting editors of a magazine in New York. I had spent most of it on extremely dangerous drugs. The only thing that worried me was the ether. There is nothing in the world more helpless and depraved than a man in the depths of an ether binge.
#2 My attorney and I were hitchhiking to Las Vegas. We were looking for the American Dream. We were going to cut the boy’s head off and bury him somewhere if he heard us talking about the Manson family.
#3 I was extremely important for the meaning of our journey to be made clear. I was certain that the Mint 400 was the richest off-the-road race for motorcycles and dune-buggies in the history of organized sport.
#4 I told the lieutenant that the bike was two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds.
