Uh, Milan Kundera, Unbearable Lightness of Being?

The first I typed it, I typed the Unbearable Lighting of Being.

Clearly that's Dianetics by L. Ron Hubbard.

Or it could be Robert Louis Stevenson.

This is actually from S-Town's unpublished second novel, "The Ways and Means of Laura Zorblatt and the Amish of Mars." This is from the scene in the third chapeter where Elijah Jones is wandering through one of the capital--New Anabaptistton--and realizes his hair looks bad. So he gets it cut. The hair cut takes three hundered pages and includes a geneology.
