One thought on “Bandido: The Death and Resurrection of Oscar "Zeta" Acosta

  1. Rick

    This was a great read, and provided a lot of great insights into Zeta, but as a non latino I can t help but wish there was some greater cultural context around it I understand his relationship with Hunter S Thompson was strained, but he s a mythic character in 60 s and 70 s counterculture, even beyond his latino roots I was a bit disappointed how much that part of his life was glossed over This book reads like lit crit than an in depth biography and that s okay just a head s up.

  2. Todd Kalinski

    No matter how much you read about Oscar Zeta Acosta, you re not going to know anything about the man Bandido, for sure An enigma, for sure Just too weird to die Gone.
