World Class Rejection Letter
Posted: Aug 22, 2011
From the great Letters of Note blog:
Jam this morbid drivel up your assSpurred on by last week's abusive note from Hunter S. Thompson to his biographer, writer Mike Peterson kindly got in touch the other day in order to share what may be the most aggressive, and possibly greatest, rejection letter ever crafted. Written in 1971, at which point young Mike was a resident of South Bend, Indiana, the furious missive was sent in response to a piece of satire he submitted to Rolling Stone magazine; unluckily for him — or luckily, depending on your angle — said piece was forwarded to Hunter for assessment.
This was his reaction.
Note: For those interested, the original piece written by Mike that inspired such a response can be read here.
