Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cindy writes her zine, Doris, like she is figuring out the human condition. She makes writing about the simplest and most common things — playing music, childhood, cooking, or sex, resonate with universal understanding. She helps us make sense of more complex things like the satisfaction from doing useful work, natural curiosity, the ability to use logic, gender dynamics, introspection, the need for challenge and change, combating depression, and creating art and literature. She shares and explores the emotions that go along with having an abortion, rape, dealing with the death of family, or sexual harrassment in a context that is enlightening and personal, feeling like a close friend opening up to you. What's most impressive though is that she relates these things into every article in her zine seamlessly.

Synopsis:

Even the simplest, most common things—playing music, childhood, cooking, or sex—resonate with universal understanding in this collection of issues of the zine Doris. Making sense of more complex things, the essays touch on the satisfaction from doing useful work, natural curiosity, the ability to use logic, gender dynamics, introspection, the need for challenge and change, combating depression, and creating art and literature.
