Doug Crandell's The Flawless Skin of Ugly People was one of the most acclaimed fiction debuts of 2007."You'll be hooked," said People. And Marie Claire called it: "The book to pick up if you root for Ugly Betty to find love. Why you'll like it: If a Jenny Craig and a Proactiv infomercial had an affair, it would look like this." Now, in Hairdos of the Mildly Depressed -- the second volume of his "Beauty Knows No Pain" trilogy -- Doug goes even wilder, deeper, and funnier to deliver more answers to the questions we all have about love, beauty and envy: *Do we have to be beautiful to be loved? *Are some sins too terrible for forgiveness *And: Is it obvious that I'm wearing a toupee? "The story is painfully believable," said Publishers Weekly. "From the characterization of two brothers who can't quite connect to the description of what happens to a man's skin when a toupee is left on too long -- and has the perverse charms readers of Augusten Burroughs and David Seadris will recognize."
