9780978866594: Constant Rider Omnibus: Stories From The Public Transportation Front (World Around Us)

Constant Rider's Kate Lopresti describes her zine as, "Comedy, adventure, melodrama, the occasional horror," saying, "I never have writer's block when writing about the bus." Here, collected in book form, are Constant Rider issues 1-7, Kate's personal history as a patron of public transport. Kate stuffs everything she's got into these stories—anecdotes and accounts, from humor to hard times. Says Kate, "When I tell people about an adventure I had on the bus, they usually tell me a story of their own. People who don't ride the bus have nothing to say." Now in its second edition with 64 additional pages, Kate gives us observations, advice, reviews, reading lists, drunken passengers, celebrity sightings, overheard dialogue, and a whole lot of the funny. As writes Donny Smith in the review zine Xerography Debt, "This must be the most hilarious mass-transit zine there is!"

About the Author:

Review:

"Sweet little manifesto on the adventures of traveling in general—and public transportation in particular—while riding the train to and from work."  —Askew Reviews

“This little piece of awesome is simple, smart, and funny.”  —Fistfight at the Arthouse

“Hilarious and well-written. Definitely worth your time.”  —Stapled to the Mattress

“Informative, engaging, funny, and entertaining. . . . This is highly recommended if you are a regular rider, or have never sat next to a stranger en route in your life.”  —Profane Existence

“An entertaining read organized into bite sized pieces that can be had on short bus trips or longer more grueling journeys. This zine is filled with great slice of life stories that at times remind you of the charm of public transit and at other times makes you feel like you're not alone on those days when you want to just scream.”  —Planet Books

“At her best, Lopresti does an excellent job pacing her stories, revealing just enough to keep the reader wanting more. Many of her narratives end with a clever 'pow,' some witty remark that completes the piece and leaves a feeling of satisfaction.”  —Feminist Review

“Advice distilled from over a decade of experiencing all the modes of public transportation the Western World has to offer."  —Bookmans

“As a person that uses public transportation quite frequently, I was immediately sucked into Kate’s prose, recognizing the world she was describing immediately. But even if I hadn’t, she has the skill to describe the people, places, and scents with such detail that anyone reading the book will have no issues in visualizing what she’s talking about.”—Marc Mason, Comics Waiting Room
