Just Say Yes: a Marijuana Memoir – Say Yes To Marijuana HuffPost Weird News


JUST SAY YES, perhaps the first marijuana memoir ever published, is a positive account of long-term cannabis use. With ruthless honesty and deadpan humor, the author observes the effect of weed upon every aspect of her life: marriage, motherhood, friendship, work, sport, sex. Phillip Lopate, Nonfiction Director of Columbia University’s MFA Writing Program, lauds JUST SAY YES: “This funny, wry and very candid memoir purports to be a Confession of an American Pot-Smoker but is really a cultural/personal history of the past fifty years. The narrative progresses backward and not only the past but innocence itself is recaptured.” John Updike wrote about Hiller’s short story collection, SKIN, this is “good, brave and joyful writing.” For more reviews of JUST SAY YES, please see the Kindle page and www.marijuanamemoir.com.
