About this work


"The word m'hashish (equivalent in Moghrebi of 'behashished' or 'full of hashish') is used not only in a literal sense, but also figuratively, to describe a person whose behaviour seems irrational or unexpected. The tales here deal with some of the possible results, desirable and questionable, or being in that state."--From cover.


San Francisco : City Lights Books, [1969]
