Small vignettes consisting of slices of the author’s life and a few other odds and ends (reviews, interview, recipe, fiction). The writing is solid but not super meaty. Zines like this are often written off as navel-gazing because the author’s personal recollections don’t resonate with other people. Constructing personal narratives can be self-involved and delusional, but toying around with garden-wall parameters and different angles to look at your life can also be instructive and illuminating—at worst, for only yourself; at best, for others too. This has the potential for both. A fine effort. –Dave Brainwreck ([email protected], MP Johnson, 4316 Upton Ave. S, Apt. 300, Minneapolis, MN 55410)
