God Loves Hair
Date: October 2020
Duration: 1 hours 24 minutes
A tenth-anniversary edition of Vivek Shraya's first book: a YA story collection that celebrates racial, gender, and religious diversity.
In 2010, Vivek Shraya self-published God Loves Hair, her first book; since then, Vivek has published six more titles, including a novel, poetry collection, graphic novel, and children's picture book, while also working as an artist, musician, and academic.
God Loves Hair is a collection of short stories that follows a tender, intelligent, and curious child who navigates the complex realms of gender creativity, queerness, brownness, religion, and belonging. This tenth-anniversary edition, published in hardcover for the first time, includes a foreword by award-winning YA writer Cherie Dimaline (The Marrow Thieves), as well as a new preface, story, and illustrations.
Told with the poignant insight and honesty that only the voice of a young narrator can convey, God Loves Hair is a moving and ultimately joyous portrait of the resiliency of youth.
