Ubud Writer’s Festival event on Pills, Powder and Smoke

I was invited to this year’s Ubud Writer’s Festival in Bali, Indonesia, one of the best literary festivals in the world. I attended twice more than a decade ago (and had extraordinary experiences in the Muslim-majority province, Aceh). This year, now run online, is a session about my drug war book, Pills, Powder and Smoke: Inside the Bloody War on Drugs, in conversation with journalist and Human Rights Watch Indonesia researcher Andreas Harsono.
