The expatriated Al Burian reflects on a year spent living in Berlin, Germany. His wildly free-range topics include: freedom, happiness, animal liberty, Aristotle, modern dentistry, riots as rituals, uncomfortable proximity to drunken teenagers, and how to best color co-ordinate an outfit that includes a Black Flag T-shirt and a baby stroller. Plus: “when you realize the freedom,” an illustrated essay by Anne Elizabeth Moore. "Burian is one of our generation's great storytellers, a wily and insightful observer of the human condition,” says Davy Rothbart of Found magazine, and this zine is “the best one yet,” says Al. Who are we to argue?
