Zine

A young woman named Pagan, just graduated from a writing program at a very prestigious university, is left with one burning question--Now what? She then takes an unusual step by deciding to invent her new self--the one the public will know--by creating her own magazine, written, created by, and starring none other than herself.

From Kirkus Reviews: Kennedy's delightful chronicle is enough to make you want to pick up a pen and start your own personal fanzine or put on some platforms and dance in the street.
From Booklist: If you enjoyed Platforms , Kennedy's read of the 1970s, you'll want to peruse her report on life as publisher of a 'zine devoted to a topic she knew well--herself. Kennedy emerged from a graduate writing program with more creativity than employability. As she explains with the insight and humor that distinguished Platforms, she solved the problem that situation posed via her 'zine. She inserts plenty of delightful comic strips, fumati, and prose from the 'zine into the narrative, and she offers a look at the slacker generation sans the usual belittling and reproof. Her stated affinity for the work of cartoonist Aline Kominski-Crumb is strongly evident; 'Zine is reminiscent of Kominski-Crumb and her husband R. Crumb's autobiographical comics--for many, that constitutes a strong recommendation all by itself.Mike Tribby
