Zazen

by Vanessa Veselka

I’ve never surfed, but I imagine being carried along on a wave — as a non-surfer —  feels a lot like reading this book. Things are happening all over the place, you’re moving around like crazy, but you’re kinda just there with no real control over anything. This book was… what was this book? It’s a Z-book, so that’s why I read it. It’s set in this like pseudo-pre-apocalyptic future Earth, and the main characters are all activists, and I just wasn’t picking up what they were putting down. It’s decently written, and I’d look into more stuff Veselka wrote, but I probably won’t revisit Zazen… (I also can’t recall why it’s called Zazen… or if she ever explained it.)
