A lazy desert vacay read

3 stars

The author seems to print runs of these in 25-100 copies, each edition with a different cover, which seems like a cool way to run a small press publication. I read the 37th, picked up at the Wine and Rock Shop in Yucca Valley (referenced, fittingly, in the book). I think the main audience of this book is folks visiting who want to nod along with the surface social dynamics described and be able to say “hey I know that place!” while reading. So, me, in this specific moment. It’s fun, would recommend if you see it in a shop while visiting Joshua Tree, but pick up Desert Oracle, too.
