¡A la Orden! – Prepare for pages of poop, puke, putas y playas (both types) when Mutual Paradise jefe Lizzee Solomon applies her grody graphics to the travelogue genre in this carnet de voyeur of a drunken beach vaycay in rural Colombia. Realness intermingles with feelsness, and it’s actually pretty educational. Cheaper than airfare! ~GS

Big Venerable: Stories by Matt Rowan $14.99
The Sleep Garden by Jim Krusoe (Tin House) $15.95 – In an underground apartment building called “the Burrow”–essentially purgatory?“twilight souls” inhabit the space between life and death. Interwoven with their stories are those of inhabitants of the living world: a retired sea captain, a psychotic former child actor (possibly the sea captain’s illegitimate son?), and the technicians who monitor the Burrow, making sure its occupants have a constant supply of oxygen and food. Through all of their stories, and the ways in which their lives, past and present, intertwine, Krusoe creates a poignant story about what constitutes a life, what remains when we die, and what we possibly carry with us into the next world.
