Thompson lost novel THE RUMDIARY.Set in a thriving yet decadent colony of the U.S. in the late 50’s, thebook has been source of countless myths and speculation surroundingfictional and actual places and personalities.These confusing tales not only involve Thompson passing as weary reporterPaul Kemp or the willing abduction and rape of his desired Chenault, butPulitzer Prize winner William J. Dorvillier channeling a good friend of theauthor and editor of a bowling publication El Sportivo, William Kennedy.Neither Kennedy nor Thompson lived more than two years in the island ofPuerto Rico.Just like Thompson managed to capture the idiosyncrasies and atmosphere ofthe hot hub in the Caribbean, Pedro Velez has developed, in a two monthself - imposed sabbatical, an intricate and non-linear narrative lead byfour main characters: Hell in LAMB UC, Ann Lee, Huntergodfs andStaged Metal Party.The four characters introduce the viewer to a web of connections, images,false characters, text and profiles that rips thru the My Space sphere likea manic Gonzo reporter burned with the hot rums of Puerto Rico.
