Asenath and the Origin of Nappy Hair


Asenath and the Origin of Nappy Hair is a comic novel that relates how the life of Shirah Shulamit Ojero, African American graduate student at the University of Penn Forest intersects with Asenath, the Egyptian daughter of a priest who married Joseph in ancient Biblical times. Shirah is an African American Jew who is unable to complete her dissertation on the ancient Egyptian Asenath because she (Shirah) keeps falling into her books and mingling with the epic heroines and heroes she is studying. The problem is solved when the epic poets, led by John Milton, sail to the future and write the dissertation for Shirah.
