From a cage, On a rock, In a puddle: A Memoir from Malta's Prison

Daniel A. Holmes

Imagine moving to the Mediterranean for a simple life, only to find yourself in and out of court until you're told you must spend the next 10 years in jail.

That's what happened to Welshman Daniel Holmes who was caught growing his own cannabis plants and tried in the Maltese courts as a major drug trafficker.

Raw, unflinching and emotional, this long-awaiting memoir was penned from his prison cell and is the first tell-all account of his harrowing experience of Maltese law courts and the humiliations and deprivations of jail.

Malta eventually decriminalised cannabis, partly because of the outrage surrounding this case.

In 2021 Malta became the first country in Europe to legalise the cultivation and personal use of cannabis. But Holmes is still banned from the island until 2023.
