Me talking to a group of people interested in hair plucking in other animals at the Brooklyn Flea. Photo by Gareth Long (the artist who designed the desks we used).
Yesterday a fact checker wrote me from the New Yorker to confirm quotes and information for an upcoming Talk of the Town piece on the “Fair for Knowledge: Hair” that took place at the Brooklyn Flea a few weeks ago. I am a little concerned I am going to sound like a mad animal myself.
If you are interested in slightly more in-depth coverage of the phenomena of hair plucking in nonhumans, I have an article on the subject in the current issue of Cabinet Magazine.
