    An avant-garde and collaborative project: presenting a portfolio by six Southern California performance artists and writing from 20 poets divided into two sections, “Cuts” and “Braidings”—this anthology is about hair. The simple theme yields provocative results: Beginning with a reference to Samson and Delilah, HAIR-RAISING explores how hair is about power—the socially accepted and unaccepted ways to wear one’s hair, how women feel about their hair, how people respond to changes in hair. At once personal and political, performative and literary, this is an ambitious book.
