Fiction. From the same metafictional universe as the films Best in Show and This is Spinal Tap, WALKING MAN documents the life and times of Brian Walker, publisher of the zine "Walking Man." Through a fateful encounter between his foot and a yuppie's BMW, Brian becomes the most famous zine publisher in America and an ardent defender of pedestrian rights. Meanwhile, he must juggle the ambitions of his sexy actress girlfriend with his own soaring celebrity. Written in the tradition of the scandalous tell-all biography, WALKING MAN satirizes so-called "alternative" culture while it fondly recollects the 80s and 90s zine scene. "I loved this book from its first page. WALKING MAN tells an extremely funny story and is spot-on in its critique of pop culture trendiness"--Joseph Weisberg.
