Hair Side, Flesh Side

by Helen Marshall (Goodreads Author)

Hair side, Flesh side

This work takes the mundane and gives it a fantastical spin. The first story centers on a woman who begins to find worrying patches on her skin. She discovers that these patches are words and that these words form sentences and paragraphs. She discovers that they form a lost Jane Austen work. The rest of the short story tells of the way in which she deals with her situation and uncovers the truth behind what has happened to her.  The other stories in this collection mirror the themes of this work,having examinations of art and culture as their primary focus. Last year was the year of the short story collection and this work was one of its stars.
