My story at The Other Room

My story “Trichophagia” is published in The Other Room as this week’s feature. Many thanks to editor Tim Raymond!

Susanna Tam started craving hair in her fifth month. She liked the texture of her own, silky and chitinous, and began eating it when she was anxious or tired or flat on her back at the clinic watching the ultrasound. The baby had a big head. The doctor said there’s a possibility the baby might be premature but it was too early to be sure. The baby’s father was thousands of miles away in Chiba, Japan, and as it turned out, with a family of his own. Susanna took a taxi home by herself, chewing and fraying the ends of her hair.

Full story’s here. Check it out!
