Announcing Swamp Book:
A zine that, like everyone, is mostly water
The first and probably only issue—May 2018—includes:
- a dispatch from a MISSOURI VILLAGE that was washed away by a 2011 Mississippi River flood, and whose residents are still trying to FIND THEIR WAY HOME;
- a history of American efforts to DRAIN THE SWAMP, the racial implications of such, and why the expression is actually a GOOD METAPHOR for the politics of Make America Great Again;
- a review of a new book explaining how it is that the Confederacy LOST THE WAR yet its ideas have retained such a PERNICIOUS HOLD on American history-making;
- and (a very small amount) more!
If you’re interested and would like to send me $5 or, really, any lesser amount on PayPal, and put your name and address in the Note field, I would be happy to send you a little zine — just go to paypal.me/samuellwe. I don’t think I’m going to put any of this online because to hell with the internet.
