No Better Than Apples #9
by Kate Larson
40p, b&w, 4.25"x5.5"
Larson documents the experience of dealing with frightening health problems, through diagnosis and into the difficulty of facing life with multiple sclerosis. Some parts of this zine brought me near tears, Larson's writing summons the pain and uncertainty of the experience while also talking about love, change and support. The image of a deep pool of water runs throughout, swimming holes and bottomless wells, resevoirs for a body in out of its depth. -EF
