Summary
"For readers who enjoy edgy rambles through the rock and roll life, 131 Different Things will be a journey worth taking." --The Current's Rock 'n' Roll Book Club "An engaging novella about a few jaded Lower East Side bartenders and their drug and booze filled quest to find an ex girlfriend in one night may conjure your worst, most desperate drunken memories of your 20's-30s, but in a good way! The story is illustrated with Nick Zinner's beautiful photos. This is a must read for all music/nightlife loving New Yorkers, or folks who wished they lived here in the aughts." --BUST, 2018 Holiday Gift Guide "A spot-on take on urban life, frustration, and flawed humanity, with distinctive visuals to accompany the knowing prose." --LitHub "We've been mightily impressed by the books created by writer Zachary Lipez, photographer Nick Zinner, and designer Stacy Wakefield. 131 Different Things is their latest work: a story of a bartender in search of his lost love, traversing a sea of strange spaces within the city as he goes." --Vol. 1 Brooklyn "A photo book and novella wrapped into one, 131 Different Things is the most recent collaboration between Nick Zinner (of the indie band Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Zachary Lipez, and Stacy Wakefield. The book features over 100 of Zinner's gritty photographs--many of them shot on film--that capture nightlife culture in New York City and beyond." --Po
Summary
When Sam, a bartender in New York, hears that his ex, Vicki, his one true love, has quit AA and is out drinking again, he embarks on a quest to find her. Sam and his sidekick Francis trek from dive bars to gay bars to rocker bars--encountering skinheads, party promoters, underage drug dealers, and dominatrixes--but they are always one step behind Vicki. It begins to seem like 131 different things are keeping the lovers apart. Before the night is over, Sam will have to wrestle with what he is really looking for
