Performing the line between guilty memories and the gilded pleasures of wasted youth, G(u)ilt tells stories of San Francisco and Los Angeles at the margins. Intersections of mental illness and poverty, queerness and pornography are explored. A lesbian relationship is haunted by digital data loss and past addictions. Whether to regret or celebrate, to remember or medicate into forgetfulness, these stories attempt coming to terms with the past in an uncertain present. The chapbook is available at Needles and Pens in San Francisco, and at LostAngelene’s etsy shop.
Reviews for G(u)ilt:
“Your Guilt zine is one of my favorite things I’ve read since I can remember. It’s something I’ve been waiting for, you know? It has all the things I want in a read: lesbians, drugs, references to LA and/or SF, glitter. Okay that sounds superficial, but. You’re amazing and I love your writing. I keep Guilt in my purse just to reread it.” – Lizzie, internet commenter
