Cindy Crabb writes with an inspiring level of honesty and compassion, exploring subjects like consent, feminism, abortion, death, self-image, creativity, shyness, queer identity, addiction, and anarchism in ways that embrace the complexities each issue holds. Living in the margins or a society whose ethical priorities she finds abhorrent, Crabb’s journey takes her through the riot grrrl girl gangs of the mid 90’s. She finds her anger and her singing/screaming voice, finds ways to deal with the loss of her mother due to alcoholism, struggles with her own addiction and mental health issues, helps to start a women and transgender health resource center, lives in shacks and warehouses, and documents it all with a fierce tenderness that draws readers in and holds them gently, allowing them to explore the intricacies of their own lives (from the back of the book).
I wrote a zine because I felt alone. I rode the bus and I watched people and they looked like they felt alone too. And I thought, what if I handed them a small packet of secrets? Would it open them up a little? Would they tell someone a secret too?
