Inspector 18

zine, #5 , $2, Michael Jackman, P.O. Box 3663, Grand Central Station, New York, NY, 10163, USA

Everyone has a friend you can sit late into the night with and he’ll tell you incredible stories. He knows just how to make the ordinary sound extraordinary, and the extraordinary sound even better. Michael has just that talent. In this dense read, Michael leads us through several stories about his life in New York City. Everything from the sobering tale of Red Helen, an aging super communist, who comes into the anarchist bookstore where he volunteers to make photocopies,- to an Infiltration-esque account of exploring a grain elevator in Brooklyn; working in a pool hall and an inspiring story of the ongoing construction of his home. A pleasure to read. Highly recommended. (KJ)
