by Leonard Buschel

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
An action packed, racy memoir that depicts a 23 year drug dealing career (never got busted) and all the unbelievable antics that come along with such a treacherous occupation. Sex, drugs, and rock and roll rule this raw and vulnerable retelling that spans decades and portrays the life-changing impact of the artists, filmmakers, and musicians on Buschel's life.
Leonard Lee Buschel grew up in Philadelphia, PA where he learned the art of scamming, scheming, and drug dealing from various shifty and lovable characters. At a young age, Buschel was faced with insurmountable loss, massive grief, and life-threatening health issues. Packed with sharpness and sarcasm, HIGH is an adventurous retelling of an exhilarating and, at times, highly precarious life. Told with depth, love, and wisdom, Buschel invites us all to look inward and summon strength from our imperfections and wildness as he has. From A list celebrity run-ins to near death experiences, this risqué memoir is a can't-put-down-must-read party from start to finish. It's an exciting story of a good boy doing bad drugs every day for 26 years who lived to tell the tale. And not from prison. From drug dealer to drug counselor. This is an amazing story, travelogue, comedy, romp, seeker's tale of a miraculous recovery, redemption, and hope.
