Think About the Bubbles #8: Trust the Knife
Trust the Knife details Joyce’s life from August 2010, when Joyce first found a lump in her breast, to August 2011, when she completed her cancer treatment. It also chronicles her simultaneous struggles with addiction, homelessness, and depression/suicide. While it’s certainly not “light” reading, Joyce’s bald-faced emotional honesty and penchant for noticing and pointing out the absurd helps punctuate her tales of heartbreak with moments of levity. This zine will make you laugh out loud, and then wonder if you should have done that.
