Al Burian reads from the new issue of Burn Collector!
The expatriated Al Burian reflects on a year spent living in Berlin, Germany. His wildly free-range topics include: freedom, happiness, animal liberty, Aristotle, modern dentistry, riots as rituals, uncomfortable proximity to drunken teenagers, and how to best color co-ordinate an outfit that includes a Black Flag T-shirt and a baby stroller. Plus: â€œwhen you realize the freedom,â€ an illustrated essay by Anne Elizabeth Moore. “Burian is one of our generation’s great storytellers, a wily and insightful observer of the human condition,â€ says Davy Rothbart of Found magazine, and this zine is â€œthe best one yet,â€ says Al. Who are we to argue?
Sarah Pinder — The Rye House, torch song, Do You Like What You See? & other fine zines
Julian Loosecannon — One Way Ticket Zine
and Chris Landry — Kissoff Fanzine, Striking Distance zine
