A reader who writes next to her favorite magazine. A husband refusing to accept infidelity. A girl who hears more than she would like. A nun on her way to her first convent. An immigrant from Sri Lanka with a dream to be a blonde. A divorced father on the day of a meeting with his little boy ... In the noisy labyrinth of the city there is a seemingly ordinary place where the paths of the characters in this book intersect. "Hairdresser's Stories" are snapshots of invisible characters from our modern everyday life. The masterful verbal spotlight casts a brief but intense light on them to show their unexpected depth, to surprise us and to make us stand by them forever.
