Inhaltsangabe: Ibiza, 1960: on the beautiful Mediterranean island, the high-rise resorts are still decades away. By chance, Damien Enright, twenty-one-years old and Irish, arrives there with his wife and two children and finds a handful of down-at-heel foreign Bohemians leading wild, hedonistic lives. He and his wife get involved; their marriage quickly breaks down and he spends two heartbroken years in London before returning to Ibiza with a new partner and another child. They take LSD and inspired by dreams of a brave new world cross to the remote island of Formentera to lead 'alternative' lives.
This is a decade before Howard Marks became 'Mr. Nice': the embryonic drug culture in the west is motivated not by profit but by idealism. Sometimes, the search for 'freedom' ventures not just beyond the mind but beyond the law. To sustain their families on Formentera, Enright and two desperado pals head to London in a beat-up car and do some risky travelers check scams. Then, restless and unsure of his love for his partner, he makes a hair-raising trek to Turkey in the depths of winter to find hashish for the group. Things go badly wrong and he find himself a fugitive, at the mercy of unreliable friends. This is road story, drug story, love story a parable about drug 'enlightenment' and the loss and rediscovery of love.
Inhaltsangabe: In the 1970's Damien Enright and his friends moved to Ibiza and Formentera, islands in the Mediterranean Sea now known for drug-fuelled rave parties, to escape the rat-race and have the freedom to get high whenever they wanted. Numerous adventures ensued in the Balearics. Dope in the Age of Innocence tells of Enright's two wives, both of whom he brought to the islands, and the children he had with them. The book also describes the schemes Enright used to finance his families' stays on the islands, from innocent tutoring, to forging checks, and eventually a disastrous trip to Turkey to source marijuana in bulk. He was stopped by customs on the border of Spain, who were amazed to discover a record-breaking haul of marijuana. Enright then details the time he spent in hiding before he was able to escape. ""It's a spiraling, pill-popping tale of LSD and hash and free love and unexpectedly harsh consequences.""-Irish Voice
