BEYOND THE STREETS Publishing is pleased to announce Poison for Rats: Six Kilos That Changed Everything, an upcoming book release written by Dr. Arthur Rapkin with Alec Banks.
Through a braided narrative set largely in the swinging 70s, Rapkin recounts his early life, full of gonzo-style hustles, kung-fu showdowns, celebrity impersonations, and rock-n-roll dreams, unveiling the exploits of a self-made outlaw whose bad behavior ended up changing U.S. drug trafficking policy and himself along the way.
"Art Rapkin’s memoir is one of the most important books we’ve put together at BEYOND THE STREETS Publishing. It is an artfully crafted literary narrative, a deviation from our image-driven art books... but we like deviation here. Poison for Rats is the first of many of our forthcoming titles that will focus on incredible stories of ‘rule-breakers and mark-makers,’ in textual form. Admittedly I was skeptical at first when Art shared personal details about his life, often thinking, This guy is full of shit, there’s no way he pulled off that Bob Dylan impersonation scam or smuggled so many drugs into this country in aerosol deodorant cans, or escaped prison! But he always had the receipts to back it up, reminding me that truth is often stranger than fiction,” - Roger Gastman
