Leaf Fielding had his first assessment with TLC reader Alan Wilkinson in April 2009. In mid-2011, Serpent’s Tail will publish his book. It’s not often that TLC experiences such a rapid progression of events, but when Leaf had his work assessed for a second time in October 2009, TLC reader Karl French immediately noted that this was one that we should look out for.
Leaf Fielding’s book is a thrilling personal story, but one which offers remarkable insights into a time, a mindset, a generation and a major chapter in British criminal history. As one of the drug-dealers jailed as a result of 1977’s famous Operation Julie, Leaf was sentenced to eight years for conspiracy to deal LSD. The story of how he ended up in such a predicament is a genuine page-turner. Now a completely redeemed character, Leaf has thirty years’ perspective on events, allowing him to tell – in To Live Outside the Law – the untold story of the LSD dealers brought down in the operation, which is thought to have reduced the amount of LSD in the UK by more than 80%. We look forward to seeing the book in print and wish him all the best.
