The war on drugs has been lost, but afraid to face that fact, the whole world is rapidly becoming one vast criminal network. From the Groucho Club toilets to the poppy fields of Afghanistan, we are all partners in crime, and this story takes us through the landscape it has created.

From the Publisher:

“The war on drugs has been lost. The simple fact is that the whole world is rapidly becoming one vast criminal network. From pop stars and princes to crack whores and street kids, from the Groucho Club toilets to the poppy fields of Afghanistan, we are all partners in crime.” High Society is a novel about our world today: a collection of criminal nations in which everybody is either breaking the law or knows people who do. A poignant and timely novel about “the ways in which the criminalization of drugs criminalizes us all.” Winner of the WHSmith Award for Fiction

Ben Elton, author of the number–one UK bestseller Dead Famous— which Publishers Weekly called “hilarious” and Kirkus Reviews hailed as “A delicious... fast and funny read”—is also well–known as a stand–up comedian, a scriptwriter for the British cult television series Blackadder, the playwright of three West End hits, and the author of six novels—all major UK best–sellers.

From the Back Cover:

“A fix of high comedy from a writer who provokes almost as much as he entertains.” -- Daily Mail
