On this week’s program, I talk to the novelist Cheryl Della Pietra, an editorial assistant to Hunter S. Thompson in 1992, about the dynamics of working with him, the reality of the actual writer’s life, the dangers of a legendary persona, Hunter’s gift for meta-journalism, the challenges of fiction writing and negotiating a gonzo vision in the service of a non-gonzo narrative, and when to put your work in the drawer and move on.
