Hair: A celebration of Afro and Asian hair in poetry and fiction.
Hair is surrounded by traditions, legends, folklore, myths and everyday joys and frustrations.
Twists, dreads, comb styles, weaves, fluffed, afro'd, dyed, treated: every style has its own stories, occasions and meanings.
In this feast of a collection, over sixty writers from all parts of the world celebrate the joys and relive the trials of hair.

"A brilliant collection that evokes memories of joy and tears, as well as bittersweet relations between generations. Beautiful and profound."
(Anandi Ramamurthy Ph.D)
