101 Uses Of A Dead Roach


Formats & editions


Two bestselling authors - one great idea.

Howard Marks is king of the dope-smoking world: Mr Nice is now at a staggering half a million copies sold, and the Book of Dope Stories has sold 100,000 copies in six months. Simon Bond is a well-known cartoonist: the classic 101 Uses For A Dead Cat came out in an omnibus edition last year - twenty years after it was first published. 101 Uses For A Dead Roach will be a humour classic - 101 cartoons ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous, of how to use the un-useable part of your joint.

About the Authors

Simon Bond

During the mid-1980s 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.

Howard Marks

Howard Marks (1945–2016) wrote the international bestseller Mr Nice, which describes his years as one of the world's most wanted drug barons. It has sold over one million copies worldwide and was adapted into a major film. He also garnered critical and popular acclaim for The Howard Marks Book of Dope Stories, Senor Nice and a series of crime novels.
