Comments by other writers

In a 1975 letter to Rolling Stone publisher Jann Wenner, the writer and journalist Hunter S. Thompson described Andelman as " of those people you'd automatically choose to be plunged into a vat of aboriginal clap-spoor, just to test the effects." Thompson was describing an incident earlier in the year when Andelman had arrived in Laos on assignment for The New York Times and wanted to take over a hotel suite that Thompson had been using.
