Outrageous...An absurd and highly entertaining comic romp. -- Booklist
About the Author
Allan Weisbecker is a novelist, screenwriter, award-winning photojournalist, and life-long surfer. He caught his first wave off Long Island, NY, in 1966, when he was 17 years old. Roaming the world in pursuit of waves during the heyday of the counterculture led to a career as a marijuana smuggler. He retired from that trade in 1980 and wrote Cosmic Banditos (Vintage), a gonzo rendering of his pot-pirate experiences.
From 1980 to 1995, Weisbecker was a screen writer for film and television programs including Miami Vice. During the 1990, he developed his career as a journalist and photographer, and his work now frequently appears in Smithsonian, Men’s Journal, Popular Photography, American Photo, Sailing, and all the major surfing publications. Weisbecker lives on Long Island.

I will be looking forward to seeing the film. I’m thinking of a “Good Fellas” with lots of The Doors, Jefferson Airplane, Rolling Stones, and Grateful Dead.
A hilarious book, but also an intellectual exercise. And, of course, a strong advocacy for the benefits of huge overdoses of alcohol and dangerous drugs while doing things like blasting around in yachts, shooting up neighborhoods, and flying at treetop level in unsafe stolen planes. People given to those pursuits (along with smuggling evil contraband) should definitely read this book.
Hopefully you've realized by now that this is not a book that "reviews" help you understand or anticipate. Suffice it to say it's like nothing you've ever read and is written with a very rare, fine humor. And has dope and guns in it. And dogs. And sex. And sub-atomic particle behavior.
Don't be a chump... it's SO great this thing is back in print, buy it and read it. I mean it.
