Tea Tulic in B O D Y

“They say that when people jump from their own – or someone else’s – windows and balconies, they first take off their socks, shoes, trainers, slippers. They jump barefoot. With their hangnails, corns and hard heels. They go to join their barefoot ancestors.”

From the absolutely unique and brilliant award-winning Hair Everywhere by Tea Tulić, translated from the Croatian by Coral Petkovich. The book of interlinked short stories, some of which are like prose poems, others like obscure texts, provides a fascinating glimpse of another side of Croatia than most people are accustomed to seeing along with a devastating portrait of the main character’s mother facing cancer.

Hair Everywhere is being published by Istros Books in May 2017
