The White Hairs is a work of spiritual mythology.
Somewhere on a white and snowy mountain, is a young creature learning how to leave his body and travel the world inside of the wind.
The wonders and terrors that he will see are the beginning of an adventure that will feel familiar to anyone who has been fed upon by life, and wanted to fight to get back the joy and soul that they were once able to take for granted.
--------------------------------------------------------- “Farshoul watched as the long white hairs on his arms became translucent. He watched as they faded away. Soon he could see through the skin and bone of his arms to the ice beneath him. The frozen water that he could see through his phantom arm seemed more real than his own body.
He watched as the others blurred in his vision, their white fur becoming indistinguishable from the snow around them. They appeared to disappear.
Then Farshoul began to move.”
- Noah K. Mullette-Gillman

I have a confession to make. I’m not that fond of fiction (as a literary genre or otherwise), so when I came across “The white hairs” by Noah K. Mullette – Gillman I admit that I wasn’t exactly thrilled. Still, something in the minimal yet straight-to-the-point cover artwork and Doric photography crammed within the pages caught my attention and got me reading. Half a dozen pages later, I realized I wasn’t holding a generic fiction novel but rather a book of shadows if you will, a personal journal of the writer’s soul: delivered in flowing language, “the white hairs” invokes strong imagery that cannot but be imprinted deeply at once at one’s ‘reading eye’. This novel takes you into a wild trip through the hidden pathways of a soul “bloody but unbowed”. Strong colors dominate every scene that you can almost see flooding your mind: the bright white of the ice, the pitch black of the void. The writer artfully interchanges these color-schemes of his narrative with the transformations of... More > the main character, Farshoul. It’s a novel of strong symbolisms and primeval motifs given in a dream-like way and with that same profound sense of clarity and transcendent realism one only experiences during REM sleep! Reading “the white hairs” leaves a literary taste of an out-of-body experience. It’s almost like astral projection. So, if you’re scared or reluctant to engage in such practices, then definitely the next best thing is reading “the white hairs”!< Less
