Its Alright a Truckface Anthology vol 2
Published by Mend My Dress Press
446p, b&w, softcover, 5.5"x7"
LB's longrunning Truckface zine has been collected into two fantastic volumes from the stellar team at Mend My Dress Press! This second anthology collects issues 12-16 and documents LB struggling and growing as a high school English teacher in Chicago's much-troubled public school system. It's about working within a structure failing in so many ways, and finding ways that students and teachers alike subvert its shortcomings. Truckface is a witty, badass, angry and emotional look at what teaching means and how it can work. It's awesome. -EF
