This is a thick perzine with commentary, fiction, poetry, art, and some reprinted stuff about the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW.) Much of this issue revolves around work related issues. Kurt talks about his job as an environmentalist, and his personal journey into corporate America, while trying to hold onto his punk and anarchist roots and values. Kurt’s strong suit is his first person narration. His writing about his thoughts and feelings is intelligent, concise, sensitive, and honest. I both agreed and disagreed with parts, but I felt throughout that this was someone I could sit down and have a worthwhile conversation with. In comparison the fiction isn’t bad but not near as seamless. While the writing shows promise, here he is reaching to find expression, whereas his first person writing is already spot on.
