In this romp full of adult themes, Norman Baker is a humble hairdresser in a small tourist town where the rich, famous and powerful go to escape their complicated lives, little knowing what simmers just below surface of the sleepy little town.
Norman is privy to the hopes, dreams and secrets of his eccentric clientele and the community's residents at large. He's heard far more about the state of womanhood than any man wants to know and has developed a decidedly unique view of the female gender.
Norman's life hasn't turned out like he anticipated. However,despite being saddled with to a name he doesn't like, working in a profession that's lost its luster, and never being taken seriously enough, he's still managed to find success with the female gender in and out of the salon.
"Adventures in Trichology" is the story of an every man and his essential place in small town life that's every bit as intriguing and beguiling as a TV drama. Norman struggles to balance his private and professional life like a high-wire performer amidst comedic mishaps, bizarre sexual antics and even murder.
The release of "Adventures in Trichology" is a very different type of novel and marks a departure from the author's usual crime thrillers, poetry and children's book. It's a welcome addition to the adult fiction genre for anyone who appreciates British humor, needs a laugh, and wants an escape from the rigors of everyday life.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book is INSANELY FUNNY! Really original, it's about Norman Baker a hairdresser to the high end crown in a small town in England. Like every small town there are plenty of scandals and bodies buried in the closet which Norman's clients reveal like a major blow out and updo! Original, funny and totally mad, his clients seem to need to belong in an asylum, - on the other hand, it don't half make you look twice at the chick in the seat under the hairdryer in your local hair salon! The book is good and believable, because human nature tells us that people do the most stupid things including murder, when they are in a small town, bored and have no other life! Briliant, Brilliant, BRILLIANT!
Absolutely loved this book. Couldn't put it down! Highly recommend!
