Strawberry Hills Forever
Strawberry Hills Forever (Erskineville, N.S.W.: Local Consumption Publications, 2007) is an 'autobiographical almanac from the world of Vanessa Berry', the first book from this proflific Sydney writer and zinester. The book features stories taken from Vanessa's zines I am a Camera and Laughter and the Sounds of Teacups, as well as new stories.
"Within its strawberry-patterned covers are tales of op shops, the Olympia milk bar, being a goth girl, suburban adventures, dressing up in a rabbit suit, old ladies sipping cappucinos, custard tarts, missing the Camperdown velodrome, and the illuminated everyday."
It was launched in style on the 23rd of June, 2007 at the Camperdown Bowling Club, Sydney; with a subsequent Melbourne launch on the 6th of July, 2007 at Sticky.
