Hairstyles of the Damned
Hairstyles of the Damned | Joe Meno
8 posts | 13 read | 7 to read
'Hairstyles' is an honest depiction of growing up punk on Chicago's south side: a study in the demons of racial intolerance, Catholic school conformism and class repression. It is the story of the riotous exploits of Brian, a high school burnout, and his best friend Gretchen, a punk rock girl fond of brawling. Joe Meno won the 2003 Nelson Algren Literary Award and is the author of 'Tender as Hellfire' (St. Martin's, 1999) and 'How the Hula Girl Sings' (HarperCollins, 2001). His online fictional serial, 'The Secret Hand', is published through 'Playboy Magazine'. His short fiction has been published in 'TriQuarterly', 'Bridge', 'Other Voices Washington Square', and has been broadcast on National Public Radio. He lives in Chicago, and he is a columnist for 'Punk Planet' magazine.

Mixing my media (Instagram and Litsy 😂🤦🏻‍♀️😂) but @Lizpixie - were you still missing these scrunchies? I do not have enough hair for them and would be happy to send them your way. 😊

Also Puff giving total stink eyes to her brother ... 😂🤦🏻‍♀️😂
#catsoflitsy indeed ....

Lizpixie Yes! That would be awesome thank you. They said they were sending replacements but it‘s been over two months now. I am in Australia though so I‘m not sure how much postage would be. Just let me know and I‘ll send it via PayPal if you want. Give me your email and I‘ll send you my address.❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ 1mo
GlassAsDiamonds Yeah - odd customer service going on with them at the moment, I got the September box on Monday after a series of 5 emails over 2 weeks 🤦🏻‍♀️. Email is glassasdiamonds at gmail dot com & don‘t worry about postage, they‘re light!! 😊 1mo
GlassAsDiamonds Reminder: send me your address! 😉 ☺️ 3w

#Riotgrams - Pink: I have no clue what this book is about. It was a cover buy because that girl has PINK hair and is listening to music🎶 with super dope headphones.🎧 Hopefully she‘s a fly girl or just bold enough to be herself. My curiosity was piqued enough...I want to know what‘s up with her...one day anyway. Right now she was the answer to this prompt. Yeah!!!

Next up! Taking the #PantslessReadathon into the bedroom, because I feel a nap sneaking up on me. And starting this one. Fitting to read it while my hair is still pink, in a little over a week I'm moving on to blue.

Jinjer What is the pantsless readathon and how cute is that doggie? 2y
Soubhiville @Jinjer Sietje is pretty cute! @MicheleinPhilly mentioned on Thursday she was going to read all weekend and call it the pantsless readathon. I had already been planning to read all weekend too, since my husband has to work, but hadn't named it, so I adopted her name 😉. It's not too late if you'd like to join us! 2y
Jinjer That's all I've been doing this weekend, reading, so I guess I'm already in! 2y
Soubhiville @Jinjer yes you are! You should use the hashtag for any more posts you make tonight or tomorrow. (It's ok to wear pants as long as you're comfy) 2y

Being, as my stylist calls us, one of her "magical unicorns ", I was naturally drawn to this cover with it's bright pink hair when I saw it at my library's used bookstore. I haven't read it yet, but plan to use it for the #micropress category in my reading challenge. #marchintoreading #judgebyitscover

RealLifeReading Oh! This fits into the micropress category? Great! 3y

Doing a causal reread of this book. I came across it in high school when I began rooting around in the Fiction and Literature section of Barnes and Noble. I was surprised by the racial component and even more surprised that I still liked the book even with that aspect. Will it hold up now? Let's find out!

MrBook Happy reads! And, a bit belatedly but, welcome to @Litsy ! We hope you enjoy your stay, I think you'll like it here 😎👍🏻. 3y

Like a misfit punk CATCHER IN THE RYE, Meno proves everyone's a phony and there's nothing new under the sun.
