Keep This Quiet!

My Relationship With Hunter S. Thompson, Milton Klonsky, and Jan Mensaert

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Keep This Quiet! brings alive the cutting-edge moment of Hunter Thompson’s career, when it took off. Harrell, who was his copy editor on Hell’s Angels, rescued his letters to her from the dustbin of history. Through them she recounts a missing chapter in his life that - incredibly - up till now is off the radar screen. Martin Flynn, the owner of, calls it "A Feast for the Gonzo Soul." Also in Keep This Quiet! are priceless reminiscences of some of Hunter's oldest friends: William Kennedy, David Pierce, Rosalie Sorrels, and editor Jim Silberman - covered in no other account. And letters to her from the satirist Paul Krassner and Dr. Gonzo (Oscar Acosta). Featured in addition are "poete maudit" Jan Mensaert and Greenwich Village "poet genius" Milton Klonsky.
William McKeen, author of Outlaw Journalist, says to "keep your eyes peeled for this new book by Margaret Harrell. Hunter often said she was the best editor he ever worked with and they were close friends." The Midwest Book Review calls it “a moving read and much recommended to any literary studies or memoir collection." Isabel Escobar writes: "Harrell's writing is crisp and easy to follow. I found it nearly impossible to put the book down."
"While the job at Random House did offer her the opportunity to meet a lot of writers and famous people, it is Hunter that became her secret office romance. The two start a correspondence within letters and long distance phone calls that morphs from a concealed passion into a long-term friendship. Keep This Quiet! is a book about a woman's life and her loves, determination, and discovery. . . . Every person in the book is bold and well defined" - San Francisco Book Review.
"Harrell beautifully tells the story of how her relationships with the three men, predominantly Thompson, progressed, sharing intimate moments and keeping the reader turning the page" - Portland Book Review.
Poet Ron Whitehead calls it a “masterpiece” (Facebook).
The iPad edition has 27 illustrations, including many in-color humorous sketches Hunter created to sign his letters - available nowhere else.
