|Everybody Else's Girl (The Story of What Happened and What Helped)
"Set in Tazewell, Virginia, a town whose wholesome storefronts and country charm hide an undercurrent of poverty and lawlessness, this book tells the story of growing up poor amid unspakable violence. Broken down trailer parks and gritty classrooms provide the background for this story of a girl searching for her voice." (from the back cover)
by Sarah Sawyers-Lovett.
|The Greatest Most Traveling Circus!
I love this book! Written by Jonas of Cheer the EFF Up zine, this is a bunch of fictional little stories including my favorite superhero Amazing Man. I'm not totally sure how to describe it all, but it's so great. Curses and forlorn love, kindergardeners and punks. All these sad, strange slices of people's lives so strange they are clearly fiction, but so simple they could be true.
|Heavy Hangs the Head
A memoir novella by Taryn Hipp about her "journey from anxiety-ridden child to deliquent teenager to divorced alcoholic... the story of how she turned all those years of experiences into a beautiful existence."
|Ilse Content Anthology
This is a beautiful book by one of my favorite zine writers Alexis Wolf. Named after her grandma Ilse, who survived the Holocaust, Alexis writes beautiful stories and poetic musings about the world, family, places, people, a sense of wonder. Highly recommended.
|It's Alright: A Truckface Anthology, #2
One of my all time favorite zines - all teachers should read this book!! "Through strikes, standardized testing, violence, bouffant wigs, school closings, and drawings of wieners, Truckface documents the life of one Chicago public school teacher. Simultaneously hopeful and hopeless, this volume contains Issues 12-16."
|It's Alright: A Truckface Anthology #1
Issues 7 - 11 of Truckface. I had never read most of these zines -- I had picked up Truckface after LB became a public school teacher, but these issues start with LB working in the food service industry - punking around, traveling, dancing, getting drunk, super gross stories about working in the meat department, and eventually deciding to become a public school teacher. Includes the first year of teaching.
|Mend My Dress: selected zines 2005-2007
One of my favorite zines compiled into a new book. There is a lot of writing in here I've never seen before, plus issues 1-6 of Mend My Dress zine, which is alot about abuse and healing. Very powerful. Very excellent.
|The Most Beautiful Rot
A novel about queer punks living together and "building the families we make when our other families leave us behind... a testament to the act of digging through the bleakness of everyday life to find soemthing beautiful growing underneath, something you weren't quite expecting."
|on the road to healing: an anthology for men ending sexism
ed, basil shadid
this book was originally a series of zines that came out between 1998 and 2004. I was always so impressed by the work basil was doing, and am excited to have these zines all together in a book! It's a great collection of short, accessible, powerful essays and stories. Includes: The Cult of Manhood, My Reisistance to Feminism, Intentional Masculinities Interview, Personal Goals for Ending Sexism, and a ton more!
|Shotgun Seamstress : zine collection
a compilation of issues 1-6 of this great zine! A zine by and for black punks.
"Summertime: A Graphic Novella in 4 parts, is a beautiful, heartbreaking and redemptive tale of sex, violence, punk, love, self-destruction and survival. Not to mentions Ginas drawings, all skillfully done in ball-point pen are just plain awe inspiring."
|Telegram A Collection of 27 Issues
This beautiful book compiles the first issues of Telegram, which is one of my favorite zines. Thick with useful stories about all kinds of things with a focus on mental health, including how to make a zine, and why zines are good for survival. I am so excited to get to read these early issues that I missed out on!
