Razor Smith has 58 criminal convictions and has spent most of his adult life in prison, where he taught himself to read and write, gaining an Honours Diploma from the London School of Journalism. He has received a number of awards for his writing and has contributed articles to the "Big Issue," the "Guardian," the "Independent," "Punch," the "New Law Journal, "and the "New Statesman."
Praise for A Few Kind Words and a Loaded Gun: 'Ruthlessly honest with himself, trenchant about the life of crime and punishment, I believe Razor's book is a genuine tour de force. Seldom does a memoir appear which has the capacity to introduce the ordinary reader to the criminal subculture without either romanticizing it or sensationalizing the material' Will Self 'Heartbreaking, compelling, brutal, shocking ... a rare insight into the criminal psyche' Sunday Times 'One of the most powerful and intelligent memoirs of a life of crime we've ever read' GQ 'Chills, thrills, bristles with confidence. Extraordinary' Guardian
