There are some truly unexpected treasures in the BookPage vault. This week I stumbled across a special gem, our 1998 Meet the Author interview with modern artist, New Yorker cartoonist and Hunter S. Thompson collaborator, Ralph Steadman.

Highlights include:

  • Steadman would name his yacht Post Orbital Remorse.
  • Anyone know if he ever finished his book about the philosophy of French plumbing and its "indelible relation to the alimentary canal"? Oh, to see the illustrations for that.
  • And is anyone else surprised that his favorite movie is Inherit the Wind?
