In the late '60s, underground comix changed the way comics readers saw the medium -- but there was an important pronoun missing from the revolution. In 1972, ten women cartoonists got together in San Francisco to rectify the situation and produce the first and longest-lasting all-woman comics anthology, Wimmen's Comix.

9th Ave: Charlotte Shane and Jenny Zhang

This event will be held at our 9th Ave. store.

 

 

 

$18.00
SKU: Shane1

In the winter of 2014, writer and sex worker Charlotte Shane sent out her confessional letter to a small but devoted mailing list. In the months that followed, readership grew to over 4,500 subscribers who followed her candid, unstinting, sometimes heartbreaking meditations. Word spread quickly, garnering the project recognition from outlets such as The Washington Post and NPR.

 

This intimate investigation is one young woman’s best attempt at understanding her own rich, conflicted life, and the forces that act upon it. The collection is a thoughtful serial memoir about love, sex, money, and identity—how those forces can break us, and how they can make us whole again.


$18.00
SKU: Shane2

A collection of blog and tumblr entries from 2008-2013. 

 

“I suppose I feel this work is my life, my true life, and everything else is merely preparation, clearing the space and propping up the kindling. My boyfriend always says, ‘It’s not like you have to do this.’ But yes, it is.

 

Because in many ways, it is everything: my source of amusement and diversion, my recreation, my sex, my identity, the most illuminating form of engagement, the most heightened form of contact. And in the long moments when I’m not primping for or in the middle of or coming down from an appointment—yes, coming down, as with a drug—I feel I am merely awaiting instructions. Or waiting to figure out what else could possibly be as fascinating and worthwhile. Can you see that about it? Even when it’s bad, even when I am uncomfortable or upset, it still seems worthwhile, because it defines my inner life.”

Poetry. Asian American Studies. "Jenny Zhang's poems broadcast themselves with a surrealist anxiety. 'Can't I be my own dream?' she asks. The answer is always yes and always no. With dizzying energy and intelligence, Zhang forages through familial, global, and even anatomical configurations vainly outlining an identity that manifests only to shift and move restlessly on.
