Product description


This title serves as a celebration of Afro & Asian Hair in poetry and fiction. From the myth of Medusa to the fraught tale of "Samson and Delilah", hair has always been a key component of cultural identity. And never more so than for Black and Asian folk. 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. Each one says a different thing about how we present ourselves to the world.

From the Publisher

Thi is Suitcase Press's first anthology and was two years in
the making. We took great care to get as wide a range of themes and styles
as possible from as many talented UK black/Asian writers as we could. It
provides a good picture of the many concerns and passions of the writers.
We saw the theme 'hair' as smiliar to Blake's 'grain of sand'. It's only
hair, and yet what amazing worlds can be discovered by contemplating our
relationship with it.
