Funwater Awesome #4
This one is somethin' special! On a surface level, Zach is telling us about his life in Tumwater, WA (near Olympia) but it's SO MUCH MORE THAN THAT! Funwater Awesome is a rewarding experience times, like, A THOUSAND. Written in tandem with Funwater Awesome #3, issue four is 64 pages of PAYOFF. On the Tumwater tip we get excerpts from John Miller Murphy's local newspaper column from, oh yeah, FREAKIN' EFFING 1889! We also get heeee-larious, detailed, crazy-as-hell mini biographies of Tumwater residents, present, past, and beyond. BUT the REAL gems here are the excerpts from Zach's ongoing novel, My Brother. This is what really gets you; these honest, patient, lovingly-written sections of prose inter-cutting the anthropological stuff. Zach is one hell of a writer and you really feel what he's doing. You feel the love he has for his girl, the complicated relationship with family ... it's super evocative and hella engaging. You NEED this zine! You will thank us later. End of endorsement.
