Smokescreen / Snowblind Summary

Smokescreen / Snowblind by Robert Sabbag

Snowblind and Smokescreen are internationally recognised as the funniest and most illuminating books ever to have been written about the drug trade. Introduced by Howard 'Mr Nice' Marks, Sabbag's classic, high-octane accounts of legendary cocaine smuggler Zachary Smith and pot smuggler Allen Long achieved cult status when Damien Hirst designed a limited edition of Snowblind (featuring a mirror cover, credit card bookmark and a $100 bill hidden inside).

One of the first books about the cocaine trade and still among the best. -- Norman Mailer
Wisecracking and higly informative. * * Sunday Telegraph * *
Sabbag is a first-rate writer . . . His book is a triumphant piece of reporting. * * New Yorker * *
Makes membrane-zingingly good drama-documentary. . . * * Esquire * *
Sabbag is an incisive reporter and a stylish class-A writer. * * The Times * *
An extremely rare cut of dry wit, poetry, rock-hard fact and relentless insight into modern American morality. * * Rolling Stone * *
Blistering reportage with a matchless line-up of renegades . . . * * Observer * *
