Who knew there was so much writing out there on Hair? On Book Talk, I look at two books that use hair as their subject—one, an attempt to understand the personal and political behind our own psychological handling of hair and, in the other, a study of the role hair has played in cultural and civil history. In addition to hair week, I take a brief look at a new Kerouac biography and a literary critic book on the survival of the print literary journal.
