About this title in Hebrew

As no reader could have failed to notice Cannabis, "this most interesting of plants", is not only of use to rope-makers, pharmacists and criminologists, but also the stuff that dreams, or at least literature, are made on. And this is what this anthology is about. Hash tales and poems, descriptions of personal experience, essays and magazine stories. From Al-Makrizi to Walter Benjamin, from Baudelaire to T.C. Boyle, from the author of Little Women to Mr. X of Cosmos fame. Translations from French, English, German and Arabic, and a couple of pieces written in Hebrew. Introduced, contextualised and annotated.

"An enlightening, enjoyable and entertaining anthology... Plenty of literary and anecdotal gems that make the book more than just 'Grass Files'."

Yedioth Ahronoth

"A beautiful and thought provoking polyphony that goes a long way in trying to solve an ancient question, is it you or is it the grass."

Ha'aretz

"An international cast of writers, ranging from the world famous to the almost forgotten and the totally anonymous, and it is all about Hash, eaten mostly, not smoked. Daor has provided short and instructive introductions which add to the interest and grace of this excellent anthology."
