POSTCARDS FROM IRVING #1, $1 or trade, 8½” x 11”, copied, 2 pgs.

Nov 15, 2022

Tyler Sonnichsen (who you might remember from One Punk’s Guide To Stand-Up Comedy back in issue back in issue #112) is the author of the Ben Irving Project: Tyler’s grandfather was a salesman and Hartford-based band leader who left behind more than a thousand postcards from his travels. This one-pager tries to make sense of Irving’s material record of “an accomplished, vibrant, and more fascinating life than almost any of us could dream of.” I’ve read one-pagers like Freak No-Hitter focused on music, and narrative ones Geneva 1.3, but never something so archeological-but-personal. A fantastic addition to the Golden Age of New and Engaging Microzines (or GANEM, if you’re nasty). –Michael T. Fournier (PO Box 1309, Mt. Pleasant, MI 48804)
