pretend it didn't happen and maybe it will go away #12

via she reviews zines by robyn on 1/15/08

(bethany hart)
1/2 letter; 24 pages
$2.00, monstershideoutAThotmailDOTcom

this was another hard zine to make it through. again, it was amazing, but i think it just hit close to home. bethany talks about her grandfather, his illness and passing, and the abuse he inflicted on the family. and it's also about her grandmother, about her dad's side of the family, and how the death of the patriarch in their family started to destroy their family bond. so sad and so familiar. for anyone who has gone through family trauma of any kind, this zine will ring true and is a must-read.
