It is an unfiltered, firsthand report from the frontlines of human experience. It is raw, and funny, and strange, and very real. As Hunter S. Thompson, the head gonzo reporter himself once said, “When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.” He might’ve been talking about this book.



Short Summary

It’s pretty much a nightmare war story mixed with as many uplifting moments as I could remember.

Development Pitch

I didn’t set out to write a piece of Gonzo Journalism but that’s exactly what it is. I see this in film form as a mashup of my favorite war movies and counterculture movies mixed into one, specifically the marijuana counterculture. Platoon, Apocalypse Now, Smd fight club mashed up with Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. But I’m the end. It’s it’s own Beast.
