Although Thompson began writing the novel in 1959, it wasn't published until 1998 thanks to it discovery by actor Johnny Depp. Depp came upon the manuscript while spending time with Thompson to improve his portrayal of the famous Gonzo Journalist for the film adaptation of "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" (1998).
