"You'd find it easier to be bad than good if you had red hair." - L. M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

With our pale skin and flaming locks - not to mention our (alleged) quick tempers and fiery passions - we gingers do tend to stick out a bit. A tiny 2% minority on this planet, redheaded humans have been met with both adoration and revulsion throughout the centuries of our existence. In Red (a gorgeous, illustrated, deckle-edged hardcover), Jacky Colliss Harvey exuberantly explores why that is. This captivating chronicle of redheads - through history, science (my suspicion that perfume smells differently and doesn't last as long on the skin of a redhead was confirmed!), culture, and art - makes the perfect present for anyone who has red hair, loves a redhead, or just enjoys a sprightly sociological survey!
