Ariel Birks


The ever-amazing Ariel Birks (Jesus Christ Superzine) returns with her first poetry book in years (Red Square Desire, anyone?). Gentle In Carnations could be seen as a book of love poems, or sex poems, but is also so much more. An exploration of the pain of being in love and having sex, yes, but even more still. A look at how our consumerist culture exploits our desires...[ continued ]

The first issue of Ariel Birks’ fabulous zine is a 48-page exploration of her former life as an evangelical teen. Instructions on how to play Christian, explaining the 'gos-pill', kissing and relationships (or the lack thereof), Christian music, Jesus camp and more.

Nominated for 2009 Zine of the Year by the Utne Reader! 48 Pages, half-letter size. Revised second edition.

The follow-up issue to Ariel Birks’ award-nominated zine is fantastic. This follows out the story of her figuring out that the whole Evangelical thing was not for her.

Within: mysterious traditions; LSD’s connection to the metaphysical aspects of Christianity; Simon and Garfunkel as a path away from God; the religious conflicts of a sexually promiscuous imagination; a glossary of terms; a miniature epilogue; and a fantastic interview with New York-based artist Nathan Vincent on his experiences with Christianity and coming out as gay to his pastor father and church-organizing mother...[ continued ]

A plethora of small moments. Singing in the streets, reverse Mother's Day cards, pine-cone determination, and much more. From the author of the ever-popular Jesus Christ Superzine.

40 pages, quarter-size.
