Introduction by Hunter S. Thompson
Afterword by Marco Acosta.

An underground classic since it was first published in 1972, The Autobiography of a Brown Buffalo is Acosta's own account of coming of age as a Chicano. Famous as a Robin Hood Chicano lawyer and notorious as the real-life model for Hunter S. Thompson's "Dr. Gonzo," a fat, pugnacious attorney with an insatiable appetite for food, drugs, and life on the edge. Acosta writes about taking on impossible cases while breaking all the rules of courtroom conduct and of scrambling headlong in search of a personal and cultural identity.

"Acosta has entered counterculture folklore. This is the life story of a man whose pain is made real, whose roots are in question, and whose society seems to be fragmenting around him."—Saturday Review of Literature
