Hair Everywhere is the story of one family and how they manage to live with the incurable disease: cancer. It is a tale that balances itself along the female line of grandmother-mother-daughter, revealing their strengths and weaknesses in times of trouble. It is also a story about how roles within a family can change when things become challenging, due to sickness or death, allowing some to grow and others to fade. Ultimately, this is a book about life; full of humour and absurdity as well as sadness, and set against the background of everyday incidents and casual meetings.
Neither imagination nor inspiration is what makes good literature; it is empathy, an eye for detail, rhythm (style) and, possibly, a trauma. All of these elements permeate Hair Everywhere, an elegant book which touches the mind and the heart.
