One of the most difficult things to live through is the sudden death of a loved one. Juan Thompson was 41 when his father committed suicide. But for him, the grieving process had an extra layer of complication, because his dad was the acclaimed writer and gonzo journalist, Hunter S. Thompson. In his new memoir "Stories I Tell Myself," Juan Thompson talk about growing up with his larger than life father, and coming to terms with their fraught relationship. He says that despite their shared last name, the two couldn't have been more different.
