Description

A look at the supercharged life of American drug smuggler Zachary Swan. "An extremely rare cut of dry wit, poetry, rock-hard fact and relentless insight" (Rolling Stone). Robbert Sabbag's Snowblind, the true story of an American smuggler whose intricate, ingenious scams made him a legendary figure in the cocaine world of the late sixties and early seventies, is a modern classic. In this "witty, intelligent, fiercely stylish, drug-induced exemplary tale" (Los Angeles Times), Sabbag masterfully traces Zachary Swan's Roman-candle career, from his first forays into smuggling marijuana to his jaunts to Colombia to buy pure cocaine, and his ever more elaborate plans to outwit the police and customs officials. Updated by the author, this captivating portrait of a dashing antihero and enthralling look at a turbulent age is sure to reach a new generation of readers. "A flat-out ball buster. It moves like a threshing machine with a fuel tank of ether." -Hunter S. Thompson
