Aaron Cometbus is back with a follow-up volume to last year's well received (and now totally sold out) Chicago Stories. This one has the same square-bound, pocket-size format but weighs in with an extra twenty pages -- 68 in total -- for the same price. Not only that, but these pieces have not appeared in Cometbus, but instead are a mixture of new, never-before-published work and rareties culled from sources as diverse as the Philadelphia Independent and Maximum RocknRoll. This time around we have ten pieces (three of which are super short) that, as the title intimates, are reviews... of sorts. What's actually being reviewed, as with all the best writing, is life itself, and the quality thereof, as it can be located and isolated with certain people, at various places and times, in particular objects and products. Casting this, the widest of nets, Aaron shares his catch: reviews of coffee, a thirtieth birthday, a restaurant (tangentially, at best), NYC, the NYC life, love at the library, the inherent integrity of being a punk, and more. Another volume perfectly suited to a life in the back pocket of your pants, by the guy who should know.
