i am not my hair

“A Hair.
A hair.
My kingdom for a hair.”

This is the famous statement by the playwright William Hairspeare.
The writer (I am waiting for her second novel) Taiye Sealsi writes about hair-issues and personal issues and identity.
‘A’ names have the day.
Look at the daughters of the Dutch King.
He has triple A.

But back to Taiye and her curly hair.
