In 2010, Vivek Shraya self-published her first book, God Loves Hair, a collection of short stories that follow a tender, intelligent, and curious child who navigates the complex realms of gender creativity, queerness, brownness, religion, and belonging.

This tenth-anniversary edition, published in hardcover for the first time, includes a foreword by award-winning YA writer Cherie Dimaline (The Marrow Thieves), as well as a new preface, a new story, and new illustrations by Juliana Neufeld.
