Zami: A New Spelling of My Name by Audre Lorde
Zami: A New Spelling of My Name

frump.burger, March 14, 2010

A poetic narrative, a brilliantly written "biomythography" that traces the author's coming of age as an artist, woman, woman of color and lesbian in the 1950s. Some of the political stuff is heavy handed, and there was a sexual passage near the end that I just couldn't handle (really, it was too much for me--and not in a good way), but overall the book is more than the story of one women and the women--family, friends, lovers--who shaped her. It's about being different, about finding oneself, and, in a way, about growth.

Double Duce by Aaron Cometbus
Double Duce

frump.burger, November 29, 2009

An open, rollicking look at the life of Bay Area punk rockers, anarchists, artists, fuckups, drunks, druggies, and other misfits. Cometbus, a pioneer of the Berkeley, CA, punk and zine scenes, brings freshness and vividness to his story, his characters and the confusing filth they live in.
