Hairdos of the Mildly Depressed

Hairdos of the Mildly Depressed

(2008)
A novel by

 
Doug Crandell's The Flawless Skin of Ugly People was one of the most acclaimed fiction debuts of 2007."You'll be hooked," said People. And Marie Claire called it: "The book to pick up if you root for Ugly Betty to find love. Why you'll like it: If a Jenny Craig and a Proactiv infomercial had an affair, it would look like this." Now, in Hairdos of the Mildly Depressed -- the second volume of his "Beauty Knows No Pain" trilogy -- Doug goes even wilder, deeper, and funnier to deliver more answers to the questions we all have about love, beauty and envy:
*Do we have to be beautiful to be loved?
*Are some sins too terrible for forgiveness
*And: Is it obvious that I'm wearing a toupee?

"The story is painfully believable," said Publishers Weekly. "From the characterization of two brothers who can't quite connect to the description of what happens to a man's skin when a toupee is left on too long -- and has the perverse charms readers of Augusten Burroughs and David Seadris will recognize."
