The Flow Chronicles
"Hi. My name is Hermitt. Not like a Hermitt who lives in a cave or is a wingnut saint. Hermitt, as in one of those weird names someone just has." Thus begins the story of Urban Hermitt, a young, queer hiphop artist, poet, and hard-traveler. For those familiar with the celebrated Urban Hermitt zine, his picaresque look at queer life and love, this book is the genesis and cornerstone of it all. Here we see the then-teenage Hermitt navigating a dirty, pockmarked trailerpark landscape of sketchy stoners, confused punks, and sinister hippies. Says fellow zinester Al Burian, "Hermitt's writing is equal parts beat poet, riot grrrl, and gangsta rapper, all with a tongue-in-cheek self-consciousness that makes for very entertaining reading." The Flow Chronicles is the confused, horny, philosophical nomadic Hermitt against the world. A raw, druggy, sexed-up coming-of-age story, The Flow Chronicles is a battle from the get-go but it comes complete with a good eye for irreverent, sharp, no-bullshit humor (and for the tender moments in the midst of horror.) Once a member of the controversial Underground Literary Alliance, Hermitt is a real-deal storyteller and good god is there a story to tell..
