book review: wanderlust

I was kind of surprised that Megan Speers’ Wanderlust: A Story Told in 50 Wood Engravings wasn’t a road trip story. Instead it’s a bunch of vignettes about being sort of an outsider punk kind of teen in Sault Ste Marie. It’s told basically wordless in these 50 images that were carved into wood. There are pictures of dumpster-diving, and listening to an old drunk talk, and playing music out in the woods. I liked it. It had a very melancholy feel.
