A new book from Autonomedia --

Conversations with Durito is the long-awaited collection of stories and
communiques from Subcomandante Marcos relating the wit and insight of the
beetle (and knight-errant) Don Durito. Marcos started writing these
stories as a way of explaining the Zapatistas resistance to neoliberalism
in ways that a child could understand (albeit a very bright child, of
course), and churned out several dozen stories, most of which appeared in
Mexican newspapers and online. This collection has been assembled by the
Accion Zapatista Editorial Collective in Austin, Texas, who provide
crucial historical and political context for each story, even explaining
literary and personality references in footnotes and a long introductory
essay. Additionally, each piece is illustrated by various simpatico
artists, and a color section in the middle of the book gives the
collection an added vibrancy. 352 pp, $16.95 here.
