The Cigarette Book

One day the last cigarette on earth will be smoked. One final puff will be sent heaven-bound, leaving a lingering, evanescent smoke-ring. Then nothing but pure, clear space. And the wise of this world will rejoice. Because logic demands that mankind is rid of this pernicious poison. And wasn't that well-known logician Adolf Hitler the most virulent opponent of cigarette smoking in the last century? Logic tells us cigarettes are bad for our health: this accounts for the diseased visions of Pablo Picasso who smoked cigarettes until his death at the age of 92.'

About the Author

Educated at Reigate Grammar School, and a scholar of Trinity College Oxford, Chris Harrald has enjoyed a varied smoking career. It concluded with many years of a solid 60-a-day intake of Silk Cut. In between cigarettes, he has worked in advertising, written screenplays and worked on several miniseries for American television. As an ex-smoker, he holds strong views. Inhale fully, saturating the lungs. Do not toy with cigarettes. Do not be indecisive: if in doubt, light up. Fletcher Watkins is from South Wales. Educated at Caerphilly Grammar School and University College, Oxford where he read English, he worked in advertising as a copywriter for fifteen years at J. Walter Thompson and Ogilvy & Mather. He is now an award-winning TV scriptwriter.
