Zine Review: Finale 95, issue #3


Perzine, Alanna Why, 26pgs, alanna.yaraskavitch@gmail.com, $2

Classic plain text lays out anxious coming-of-age moments in this little zine. Alanna graduates from high school, goes to some shows, begins university, crushes on a boy, and realizes her life is changing. That’s a lot of potential topics for a single zine, but this one stays pretty lightweight: no big epiphanies, but lots of two-page glimpses. More of a letter to friends and acquaintances than crafted stories, I think
Alanna’s writing is honest but self-aware. There’s reflection that comes from living through change, without getting bogged down by over-wrought teenage emotional clichés. Maybe this shows that zine readers make better zine writers? Alanna’s Winter Survival list could probably be saved and used by many of us almost adults well into our thirties. (Rodney Dickinson)
