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.
