Stories Care Forgot Book

Stories Care Forgot Book

by Ethan Clark

An anthology of zines from and about New Orleans. For years the Crescent City's thriving punk and zine community has produced beautifully rendered volumes of writing and artwork. Authors have poured their hearts out, sharing their thoughts and opinions on music, politics, bikes, gentrification, gender, class and, of course, the city itself. Selections from Chainbreaker, Nosedive, Crude Noise, Rocket Queen, Emergency, I Hate This Part of Texas, and Chihuahua and Pitbull. In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, many of the originals of these zines have been lost or destroyed. This book serves not only as a preservation, but also, by donating author proceeds towards grassroots New Orleans organizations, as a step towards rebuilding that city that inspired and shaped the body of this work.
