Extracting the American Outlaw ft. Sonya Mann
In August, 1967, Bonnie and Clyde comes out and glamorizes two real-life outlaws on the big screen. It is in this moment that foundational gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson publishes his first book, a close-up account of the Hells Angels motorcycle gang. In both works, we see the self-conscious creation of an American outlaw image, yet each work offers a distinct vision of its subject just as counter-cultural shifts are taking this energy in new directions. Indie publisher Sonya Mann (SonyaSupposedly) joins host Timothy Wilcox to explore this thrilling double vision.
