Chocolate Hair/Vanilla Care, the book!
Sorry I've been sparse in this space of late. Between internet issues (the bane of our China existence!) and some big writing projects (my book! My book is taking shape!), there's not much left for the blog. But I did have to figure out a way to get in here to let you know that my friend Rory, who I've posted about here and here, has gone and published a book containing similar information to her popular blog, Chocolate Hair/Vanilla Care.
I just re-read Hemingway's A Moveable Feast (so good, especially now that I've walked those streets in Paris and sat in those cafes he spoke of, and am myself an expatriate), and I was moved by the way he drops in his relationships with so many great writers of his time. It made me think about how I have a strangely high number of friends who are writers and published authors. I daydream of one day long from now writing my own A Moveable Feast set in Asia, where I'll drop in my own friends' names. And then I bring myself back to this day, where I still need to work on my own book before I get to the memoir-writing stage!
Anyway, back to Rory... if you yourself are someone who has a child with natural hair or have natural hair yourself, this book is for you. Check it out!
Back soon! We're heading down to Hong Kong for China's Golden Week, along with the other millions of Mainlanders. There are currently riots going on in the name of democracy. Should be interesting...
