WHERE I STAY, gimme a break Andrew Zonorza s handsome book its very bookness sticks I mean this as a compliment in my craw it s some indefinable compendium of photo album, travel diary, prayer journal but, whatever, WHERE I STAY stays now on the bedside table now among the oh so important stuff of my desktop I ve caught the virus, Zornoza s special strain of American wanderlust Every other page here presents a photo of some bleak scape of these ragtag States, in most of which nature has been rou [...]
After a first reading, I wasn t sure upon a second reading, I was won over completely by Andrew Zornoza s novel Where I Stay Novel in quotes because I believe that to be the author s preference, although to my mind the book is much indeterminate than such a label suggests It could easily be a series of prose poems Perhaps the book qualifies as a novel because there is a single, unique point of view, a narrator who is also the protagonist throughout While, in disarray dishevelment, he knocks abo [...]
This is an cryptic collection of random thoughts, experiences, and photographs of the author s fictional journey through the Western US and Mexico This definitely isn t the scenic route Zornoza s travels take him to the edge of urban life, mainly concentrating on the rough roads and deserted highways that have been left in the past by time and progress The landscape is grey, gritty, and jagged much like the words he chooses to describe his interactions and his reactions to it all.His observation [...]
Reprinted from the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography cclapcenter I am the original author of this essay, as well as the owner of CCLaP it is not being reprinted illegally Andrew Zornoza s Where I Stay bills itself as a photo novel, meaning that text and images are combined here to produce one unified fictional narrative tale And I have to say, although I found the written part only so so a sort of rambling Jack Kerouac meets Studs Turkel tale about the freaks and losers who populate [...]
Haunting and bleak Never really felt a momentum, despite the progression forward in time with each entry Perhaps that s the point moving forward and staying the same And then with the final entry, you get a totally different sense staying put and moving forward in life The writing was okay, some great parts, but many parts felt flat, or monotone Again, perhaps that s the point The photos were great, and integrated well The book itself is really quite a lovely object I love when small presses do [...]
This is my cousin Andrew s most recent book It tells the story of an unnamed narrator struggling to create order out of memories Although it does detail travels in the west, southwest, and Mexico, the book is consciously non narrative It is quiet It is contemplative It is very Andrew Zornoza.
road novel of the experimental variety reminds me somebody else s book, but i cannot remember who stories combined with the pictures combined with the poems are chilling.

Really, a 3.5 I love the concept and the book as a whole, but there was something that seemed to be missing throughout.
Excellent I ll write a micro review of this book on my blog sometime in the near future.Review here, stevenkarl 2009 0
