Chorrada : A Zine About the Mundane Everyday Adventures of An Expat Living in Extremadura

60 pages, 8" x 6", $5.00US or 5 Euros >>> Kris, Calvo Sotelo 13B, 4B, Plasencia 10600, Caceres, SPAIN or PayPal to lolalucio [at] gmail [dot] com

This is a 'best of' collection from the six issues Kris published of his zine Chorrada. Lotsa good stuff in here - a visit to a Chamber Pot Museum; short interviews with Ned Brooks [It Goes On The Shelf zine - reminding me I really gotta check this one out!] and Dale Speirs [Opuntia zine]; letter columns; the stories behind a dozen pairs of Kris's shoes; secondhand book scores, a few book reviews, and a bookstore review; Kris's dulcimer obsession; and more. It's really nicely printed with a simple and easy-to-read layout, the only problem I had was with the string binding - it looks good but wasn't practical. The string kept sliding around then the pages did so too, so I stapled it myself. [I really don't know how anybody could live without a long-arm stapler...]
