What constitutes a stoner book is a matter of endless debate, particularly while stoned and literate. For some, stoner lit can only be what’s aesthetically elevating, like Milan Kundera’s An Unbearable Lightness of Being. Others have bias toward texts that educate on the plant or its history.
While we’re indoors we’re going to want choices. A new literary list offers us quite a weedy array of choices.
- While huddled with our books, we can be glad that One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez is stoner lit in the same time line that Ricardo Cortés’ It’s Just a Plant. Meanwhile, Bong Appétit: Mastering the Art of Cooking with Weed: A Cookbook belongs in the canon with Catherynne M. Valente’s Space Opera, and the planet is a better place for it.
- Leafly Senior Editor Bruce Barcott’s Weed The People will be part of a Facebook discussion at 1:30 p.m. PST on April 9.
