I’ve read this zine three times since it arrived in my mailbox last week, and every time I just can’t get over how good it is. K says of it, “Like pretty much every zine I’ve made for the last 10 years, this is short stories about boredom & bad news.” And yeah, it’s comprised of brief accounts of some of the hardships & heartbreaks that she’s gone through in the recent past. But there is so much more buried underneath these stories of break-ups, disease, sadness, & assault. There’s the emotion of being tangled up in so much despair, and the hope of making it through it all. Most of my love for this zine lays in K’s writing style — it’s graceful & strong, with sentences & scenes that will stick with you long after you’ve turned the last page. This is hands down one of the best zines I’ve read in the nearly 20 years that I’ve been into zines. Highly recommended.
