FRIENDS, GET WAYWARD: NOTES ON TRAVELING IN AMERICA: 4¼” x 8½”, 29 pgs.

In an effort to see America before it becomes “one giant Wal-Mart,” Adam Gnade sets off across the country and records his experiences in this small travelogue of a zine. He drinks whiskey, reads Dostoevsky, visits the homes of his favorite dead authors, and gets solicited by a young prostitute in a train station, turning her down only to see her leave with the next man she approaches. Friends, Get Wayward does what any good travel writing ought to do: it makes me want to travel. As Adam writes, “This zine is an attempt to see [America] how it is before it’s too late.” In this still-early season of political vitriol, divisiveness, and outright fascist bullshit, it is nice to sit down with this zine and see the country through Adam’s words. –John Mule (Punch Drunk Press)
