Pitched partway between multivalent modern Orphic hymnal and satiric devastation of the Internet age's spiritual emptiness, Divorce Procedures for the Hairdressers of a Metallic and Inconstant Goddess, Justin Isis's poetry debut, combines discordant rhythms, fragmented multilingual sampling and deliriously surreal imagery to create a crosscultural assault on boredom, a pagan invocation of divine progenitive forces: Lawrentian goddesses of the blood glimpsed through a Situationist lens of anarchic eroticism and vandalizing humor. A Mystery Rite in rhyme for the terminally distracted and a trenchant breviary of the lightning age to come.
Shirley runs a mobile hairdressing service from her Liverpool home. Ably assisted by her camp-as-a-row-of-pink-frillies sidekick, Oli, she trims and colors the locks of young and old and fraught and fancy-free alike in the local pensioners' home and on the production line of Henshaw's factory (while the boss's back is turned towards the 18th green). She's good at her job, keeping her customers happy and not just on the hairdo front. The under-dryer gossip is harmless enough, until Shirley and Oli are encouraged to use the tools of their trade to covertly trail a client's philandering hubbie. Operation "D&M" is the start of an unusual sideline for the perm-wielding duo, a cut above the usual shampoo and set.
What did you learn today and who from? This is not just a feel good book; it is a thought book as it will get you thinking. This book is dedicated to my mum, our friend Tim Dasilva and little Tal Doron who were taken from us way too soon. I never tried to write a book before as I'm not a writer. I'm just a guy that's been cutting hair for the past 23 years in England and Canada. I'm not a person who is always positive and think that everything is going to be great, as life does happen. I just wrote the book because someone told me I couldn't and wouldn't. I found out that the stories you have can help people at times. As the stories that they have might help you. Give yourself a bit of time to hear what people are saying. After reading this book you will not be a champion hairdresser as it has nothing to do with hair really. If you keep this book around and when things happen in life you might find something to help you get through it. As these are my real stories and real advice. Hear is what I have to say so far.
