A Hair's Breath
(La cabellera andante)
Commercial Non-Fiction / Literary Non-Fiction
An essay on hair in culture and literature, from the Bible to fashion magazines. Margo Glantz brings together playful experimentation and meticulous research in her exploration of hair in literature, film, music and other forms of cultural expression. In this book both the body and the text tend toward fragmentation. It is an interdisciplinary, intercultural and intergender book that offers a kaleidoscopic vision of a topic both eccentric and familiar, superficial and intimate: hair.
