One Word Review: Surreal.
One Line Review: A woman has to unblock the drain and discovers the world isn’t what it seems.
One Paragraph Review: This is a story that slowly introduces you to a weird place and then makes that the reality. When the unnamed narrator pulls a hairball from the shower she discovers it’s alive and as the story progresses it slowly morphs into something more recognisable. The domestic start gives way to a surreal relationship and then a questioning of reality and part of me wanted to stay in the image world that Frosgren ends ‘Hairball’ with.
It was a pleasant surprise.
