Cindy Crabb's new book, "The Encyclopedia of Doris" offers stories, essays, and interviews from 2001 to 2011. Inside are issues 19 - 28 of the beloved zine, "Doris," along with a collection of never before published writing.

Crabb writes with an inspiring level of honesty and compassion, exploring subjects like consent, feminism, abortion, death, self-image, creativity, shyness, queer identity, addiction, and anarchism in ways that embrace the complexities each issue holds. Living in the margins of a society whose ethical priorities she finds abhorrent, Crabb's journey takes her through the riot grrrl-girl gangs of the mid 90s. She finds her anger and her singing/screaming voice, finds ways to deal with the loss of her mother due to alcoholism, struggles with her own addiction and mental health issues, helps to start a women and transgender health resource center, lives in shacks and warehouses, and documents it all with a fierce tenderness that draws readers in and holds them gently, allowing them to explore the intricacies of their own lives.
