This will be a totally different kind of anthology to anything we've seen before, filled with everything but the predictable. Howard Marks has gathered together all of the unpublished material sent to him over the years from drug users, traffickers, smugglers, prisoners; people from all walks of life. Along with such insightful, funny and original work Marks will add his own personal collection of some of the best contemporary writing on drugs.
Howard Marks' Book of Dope Stories will take you on an electrifying journey through the discovery, consumption, and trade of mind-altering substances
About the Author
During the mid 19802 Howard Marks had forty-three aliases, eighty-nine phone lines and owned twenty-five companies trading throughout the world. At the height of his career he was smuggling consignments of up to thirty tons of marijuana, and had contact with organisations as diverse as MI6, the CIA, the IRA and the Mafia. Following a worldwide operation by the Drugs Enforcement Agency, he was busted and sentenced to twenty-five years in prison at Terre Haute Penitentiary, Indiana. He was released in April 1995 after serving seven years of his sentence.
"A folk legend... Howard Marks has huge charisma. He sounds like Richard Burton and looks like a Rolling Stone." - "Daily Mail"
