Howard Marks  Other books by Howard Marks

This is the story of a man once dubbed the world's most prolific drugs smuggler, Howard Marks from Kenfig Hill. But despite being a Welsh-speaker from the south Wales valleys, he says that there are two Wales' in his history. The Wales he wanted to turn his back on and the Wales he is so determined to be a part of once more. The journey between one Wales and the other is discussed in this book - the first autobiography to do so. And the first in Welsh. It is a journey which was begun by a murderer, in prison in America. Iolo Morganwg, Super Furry Animals, Billy the Kid, Patagonia and Rhys Ifans all feature in this story in their turn, as the author rediscovers a Wales that is relevant to him today and as he delves into the history of his ancestors. This is an honest and personal account. It summarises the journeys of several people over the last few decades as they ask the same question as Howard Marks - What is Wales?
