About the Author

Born in 1935, Oscar Zeta Acosta was an activist in the Chicano Movement and an attorney. His friendship with Hunter S. Thompson provided fodder for that author’s best-known work, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, in which Acosta was dramatized as the eccentric Samoan attorney Dr. Gonzo. Acosta disappeared in Mexico in 1974 and is presumed dead.
