Straight Life: The Stories of Art Pepper : So, in 1952, he began a long series of hospitalizations and incarcerations for violations of the drug laws of his time—possession, internal possession (“marks”), and then for violations of his previous releases (more possessions and internal possessions).

@allmusic : His recordings for Contemporary and Galaxy rank with the greatest work of his career. Pepper’s autobiography Straight Life (written with his wife) is a brutally honest book that details his sometimes horrifying life.

@last.fm : Perhaps most famous for his recurring legal transgressions, stemming from his addiction to heroin, Pepper had several memorable and productive “comebacks” throughout his career.
