Back in print for the first time in a decade, this is the hilarious autobiography of a pioneer of the 1990s zine movement. A young woman named Pagan, having just graduated from a writing program at a very prestigious university, is left with a single burning question: Now what? She then takes an unusual step by deciding to invent her new self—the one the public will know—by starting her own magazine, one that will be written, created, and star none other than herself.

Praise For 'Zine (Pagan Kennedy Project)

“Kennedy emerged from a graduate writing program with more creativity than employability. As she explains with the insight and humor . . . she solved the problem that situation posed via her ‘zine. She inserts plenty of delightful comic strips, fumati, and prose from the ‘zine into the narrative, and she offers a look at the slacker generation sans the usual belittling and reproof.” —Booklist, on previous edition
