The sultry classic of a journalist's sordid life in Puerto Rico, from the bestselling gonzo author of "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas". Soon to be made into a film, with Johnny Depp starring as the lead character, Paul Kemp, who moves from New York to the heat of the Caribbean Sea. Hanging out at Al's Backyard, a den selling booze and hamburgers, he meets Yeamon, whose delectable girlfriend has Kemp stewing in his own lust. But the idle tension that builds up in places where men sweat 24 hours a day is reaching a violent breaking point. The film is out in September.
