Including a chronicle of his first mescaline experience, a trailer-park confrontation and ending with an unnaturally poignant love story, Screwjack is an exhilarating collection of short stories. As Thompson puts it in his introduction, the three stories here ‘build like Bolero to a faster & wilder climax that will drag the reader relentlessly up a hill, & then drop him off a cliff . . . That is the Desired Effect.’ Amid all the hilarity, Hunter S. Thompson proves just how brilliant a prose stylist he really is. Screwjack is salacious, unsettling, and brutally lyrical. ‘Hunter Thompson elicits the same kind of admiration one would feel for a streaker at Queen Victoria’s funeral’ William F Buckley ‘There are only two adjectives writers care about anymore, brilliant and outrageous, and Hunter S. Thompson has a freehold on both of them’ Tom Wolfe

Nel 1991 Hunter Thompson pubblicò un’edizione a tiratura limitatissima (poco più di trecento copie) di Screwjack, un sottile volume con tre racconti svitati e originali. I volumi divennero velocemente oggetto di culto per collezionisti. Tre storie scorrette, folli ed esagerate che ci restituiscono il Gonzo nel pieno della sua follia creativa. “Mescalito” è la cronaca visionaria di un’attesa in un albergo di Los Angeles sotto l’effetto di droghe. “Morte di un poeta” racconta della visita alla casa-roulotte di un amico e della fine violenta di un rapporto fatto di improvvisi scatti. “Screwjack” regala i dettagli osceni della scappatella erotico sentimentale tra lo stesso Thompson e il suo gatto nero.

This book deals with two important areas that directly affect kiln availability for production. These two aspects decide if the cement plant would make profit or loss during the year. At the moment there is no book that deals with these aspects. The literature on these subjects is scattered and the totality of the subject is missing. The book Refractory Engineering and Kiln Maintenance in Cement Plants is an utmost requirement for the Cement Industry and would fulfil the needs of the Cement Industry all over the world. It has brought out various developments of refractory with the changing technological scenario. The contents is totally comprehensive in every respect and has been planned in such a way that starting from Changing Phases of Kiln Systems and Choice of Refractories, Improving the Kiln Up-time, there are also important chapters on Inspection, Storage and Packing of Refractories, Refractory Management, Kiln Maintenance with a bonus of a glossary of the technical terms. The book will serve as a handbook for production managers, production engineers, Kiln operators, refractory engineers, maintenance managers, purchase engineers, inventory engineers, warehouse officers and storekeepers.
