Thinking About Suicide

Catalog Number: 
z.10
Date: 
2004
Volume: 
1st ed
Issue: 
1st ed
Abstract: 
The pink cover of this zine states that this is "not another one of those educational booklets," but rather a "personal story." This is a pretty great, and pretty extensive look at the concept of suicide, all through the eyes of someone who has been there and done that. Katherine talks about the things that had a tendency to bring her down, and how she struggled through all the bad to try and find the good. The personal touch to this zine is what really makes it interesting to read, though it doesn't have that per-zine look to it. The writing is very professional, with the references cited in the back and everything. There are a few photos, and some clip art, and towards the end the topic of mental health care is discussed as well. If you or anyone you know is going through some tough times, this one might help out. Half size, 64 pages, comes with a cool "Chicago is for Loners" sticker.

Bunches of Punches

Date: 
2005
Abstract: 
Author's personal stories about childhood, growing up, overcoming extremely traumatic events, and becoming a parent.
Language: 
English
Notes: 
There's no date on the actual zine, but the author mentions getting a driver's license in 2003 after overcoming a phobia of driving, and other stories are about going on a road trip in her car (an '86 hearse, btw) which would have had to have been sometime between then and now, so I just guessed 2005.
