Where I Stay

characters Where I Stay 107 Transition suatters survivalists prostitutes drug runners skinheads border guards and con men WHERE I STAY is a meditation on desperation identity geography memory and love a story about endurance about the empty spaces in ourselves about the new possibilities we find only after we have lost everything Refreshing pitch perfect. This is an cryptic collection of random thoughts experiences and photographs of the author s fictional journey through the Western US and Mexico This definitely isn t the scenic route Zornoza s travels take him to the edge of urban life mainly concentrating on the rough roads and deserted highways that have been left in the past by time and progress The landscape is grey gritty and jagged much like the words he chooses to describe his interactions and his reactions to it allHis observations are sometimes funny sometimes tense and often a bit obscure You get the impression that he has x ray vision and sees beneath the surface of the locations as well as the hardened exteriors of the people he meets He encounters the most diverse group of people imaginable all lingering on the outskirts of city and suburban life some intentionally and some without choice The black and white photographs heighten the sense of distance and reminded me of a Dust Bowl migration There s sadness within it all yet the traveller continues Much like an epic uest he keeps pursuing that which he cannot identifyThere are cracks in the country in its families and highways houses and rivers factories cellar windows truck stops in the sounds of chattering televisions in the plexiglass booths of pay phones by bus stations in the crushed glass of parking lotsThe prairie was my cellar door I had removed everyone I knew or the people had removed themselves I replaced them all with a vast plateau then mountains dry desert broken pieces of landscape that didn t uite fit together I found people in the cracksZornoza s gift in this collection is the little surprises he throws out amid the descriptions of the raw landcape In his diary like entries he may explain what happened and where but he may also through out a mysterious phrase because if someone was making a movie of her the movie would not be good She was a bad actress but there was no movie there was no acting I really enjoyed the photographs but the pictures his words composed Sparse with no unnecessary details or dialogue An excellent collectionIt reminded me somewhat of Sam Shepherd s Day Out of Days

review ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ´ Andrew Zornoza

characters Where I Stay 107 Fiction In the process of constantly disappearing the unhinged unmoored and unnamed narrator of WHERE I STAY travels through a cracked North America stalked by his own future self and the whispers of a distant love From Arco Idaho to Mexico City he flees along the highways and dirt roads of a landscape filled with characters in. Haunting and bleak Never really felt a momentum despite the progression forward in time with each entry Perhaps that s the point moving forward and staying the same And then with the final entry you get a totally different sense staying put and moving forward in life The writing was okay some great parts but many parts felt flat or monotone Again perhaps that s the point The photos were great and integrated well The book itself is really uite a lovely object I love when small presses do cool stuff like that
