SHARDS OF GLASS IN YOUR EYE #9, $3, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 24 pgs.
This is a breezy humor zine out of Beverly Hills, California, of all places. Kari applies a sharp sense of humor to the eternal weirdness of her location as well as pop/celebrity culture at large and herself (e.g. “Dear Diary: I just got done watching a PBS documentary. There’s nothing like a rock-climbing congenital amputee to make you feel like shit about yourself.”) There are two longer (read: more than half a page) essays about body stuff—one about the embarrassment and difficulty around finding a bra good for running when you have big boobs, another about being really short. All in all, a very enjoyable, quick read. –Dave Brainwreck (Kari Tervo, PO Box 7831, Beverly Hills, CA90212, [email protected])
