About the Author

Robert Sabbag is also the best-selling author of Smokescreen, Too Tough to Die, and a memoir, Down Around Midnight. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Review

One of the first books about the cocaine trade and it is still among the best.” —Norman Mailer

A flat-out ballbuster. It moves like a threshing machine with a fuel tank full of ether. . . . Sabbag is a whip-song writer.” —Hunter S. Thompson

One of the best books about drugs ever written.” —Robert Stone

One of the most dazzling and spectacular pieces of reporting I have ever read.” —Nora Ephron

“An extremely rare cut of dry wit, poetry, rock-hard fact and relentless insight.” —Rolling Stone

A triumphant piece of reporting.” —The New Yorker

“A witty, intelligent, fiercely stylish, drug-induced exemplary tale.” —Los Angeles Times

“The ultimate slide down the precipice of hip.” —Susan Brownmiller

A classic.” —The National Review

“After reading Robert Sabbag’s Snowblind, one is overcome with a sense of having finally understood America. It is that rare kind of book that compels a reader to call up all of his friends and read passages to them over the telephone. It is destined to become an American classic.” —Claude Brown, Jr.

A beautifully written book.” —Rita Mae Brown

The most authentic story of the big-time cocaine trade that has hit print, and Sabbag tells it with novelistic razzle-dazzle, setting down knife-sharp scenes as the action moves: Mexico, New York’s big hotels, Harlem streets, Bogota’s high and low-life . . . scenes and characters that make your skin crawl. A compelling read.” —Publishers Weekly

“It’s excellent . . . characters leaping to life right out of Hemingway and Damon Runyon, and everywhere, supercharging, that fine electric dust of Cordilleran snow. I hate to think of what Sabbag must have gone through to write it.” —Richard Rhodes

“An immensely entertaining book.” —Newsweek

Alternately scary and funny, wherein an incident or an insight is compressed and polished to an impressive sheen.” —Baltimore Sun

“This is a glorious and glittering piece of craftsmanship—like good surgical steel . . . an exciting, living story—beautifully told, addictively readable, and as urgent as a siren coming to a sinister stop in front of where we all live.” —Davis Grubb

Fascinating.” —Houston Chronicle

“Rip-roaring . . . a marvelous, cheerful adventure of modern times.”—Washington Star

“It’s a challenge to put the book down.” —Florida Times-Union

“The style is charged with energy.” —Boston Phoenix

“Robert Sabbag is one beautiful writer.” —Nashville Banner

“An impeccably researched, carefully written book that reads at times like an adventure story.” —Worcester Telegram

“A meticulous study . . . fascinating.” —Library Journal

“Hip and often very funny . . . provocative . . . and utterly convincing.” —Miami Herald
