Zine Review: Somnambulist #19

actual zine cover is in black & white

Somnambulist #19
$15 / 4 issues
Martha Grover
PO Box 14871
Portland OR 97293

The centerpiece of this issue is a narrative recounting two days of a grueling walk that Martha took with her boyfriend through Oregonian countryside titled “The Walking Trip – A Story About Learning How to Be Okay”. I could feel Martha’s pain as she bravely recounts what I would consider the walk from hell and the insights / lessons she encounters along the way. None of the writing by other authors in this issue grabbed me. From a reader’s standpoint, Somnambulist might work better as a perzine than a litzine.
