Quick Overview

Miro Basinas is an experimental botanist—part mad scientist, part gentleman farmer—who sells his rarefied product to a discerning clientele. Only he’s not growing heirloom tomatoes or making organic wine— he’s growing weed. And when Miro hits the big time by winning Amsterdam’s Cannabis Cup, cannasseurs and ganjaficionados aren’t the only people who want a piece of him and his mind-blowing pot that tastes like mangoes.

  • Baked: A Novel


The latest wickedly funny crime novel from Mark Haskell Smith, Baked opens with a bang as Miro is cut down by a bullet. A mild-mannered hipster who doesn’t know the first thing about revenge—or even who shot him—Miro is soon on a quest to recover his prize invention and to secure his place as the Floyd Zaiger (creator of the pluot) of weed. It’s a journey packed with a delicious cast of charac ters, including a string-theory obsessed cop, a paramedic with a kinky streak, a Mormon missionary struggling to keep his “sap” under control in a city that is the personification of sex, a half-Irish half-Salvadoran drug dealer and his dim-witted associates, the owner of a taco truck, a cougar starlet, and an entrepreneur who wants to turn his medical marijuana Compassion Centers into the Starbucks of pot. Baked is a hilarious, rip-roaring romp from a talented, utterly original novelist.

“A laugh-out-loud, thrill-a-minute, tour de force of bad behavior, weirdness, and contemporary illegal commerce. With Baked, Mark Haskell Smith may just have written his masterpiece.” —Jerry Stahl
