Aspen may be frivolous, but this book is not. Gonzo journalist Ted Conover seeks to uncover its mystique, working first as a cabdriver, then as a newspaper reporter. He infiltrates fancy parties, meets Hunter S. Thompson, sneaks into John Denver's new-agey conference and others, crashes a UFO landing. He examines the effects of hedonism, growth, wealth and development on the environment of a once-pristine tourist resort that both needs and resents its guests. A thought-provoking yet witty, breezy read.
