Mostly on the Edge: Karl Hess, An Autobiography

by Karl Hess, Edited by Karl Hess, Jr.

He left school at 15 to write for the Washington Star, and wound up, just a few years later, as a senior editor at Newsweek. He helped William F. Buckley, Jr. found the National Review. Later he became a shining light of individualism, winning an Academy Award for his documentary Toward Liberty. He eventually rejected conservatism to become a spokesperson for the New Left. He used drugs, smuggled guns, rode motorcycles, and published an article in Playboy that defined libertarianism and ignited a national debate. He fought the IRS until he was nearly destitute and then won freedom awards. Finally he penned his autobiography about living Mostly on the Edge.
