The Garlic Papers: A Small Garlic Farm in the Age of Global Vampires

by Stanley Crawford.

THE COMPELLING PERSONAL STORY AT THE HEART OF THE NETFLIX DOCUMENTARY “GARLIC BREATH.”
Readers who care about preserving local American businesses will appreciate this new book by novelist and garlic farm owner Stanley Crawford. In the fall of 2014, Crawford questioned the U.S. Commerce Department’s granting of an exemption of duties to the largest importer of Chinese garlic, setting off a massive legal battle in which his small farm in New Mexico has been pitted against the Chinese importer and its several international law firms. In this compelling account of his David and Goliath battle, now in its fifth year, Crawford describes his personal and farming life under a cloud of lawsuits and administrative skirmishes. The unusual case was of such interest that it became the subject of a Netflix documentary, “Garlic Breath,” in the six-part series Rotten, released in 2018.
