This zine is written in both French and English and while neither is dominant, I don’t know French, so I can only review this in regards to the English portions. What I did read I really enjoyed, as the author wrote pieces about the effect of punk on his life and a road trip from Montreal to visit libraries in New York City and New Haven, Connecticut. When I figured out that he was a library student, I identified with the zine even more since I am not only a library nerd, but also have a library science degree. The author seems like a laid back person, the type of individual I could get along with (similar interests always help). Like him, when I go on vacation I like to visit libraries (especially non-traditional ones) to see how they operate. I only wish I read French! Instead, I will take this to Montreal with me in a few weeks when I go to visit my Québécois friend and make her read this to me. Definitely recommended for any bilingual punks.-Kurt Morris (Cheaptoys, 19, montee du caroubier, 06240 Beausoleil, France, [email protected])
