Last week the Utne librarian, Daniel Maestretti, featured Geez magazine on Shelf Life, a short spot where they feature important or nifty stuff. She pointed out Josh MacIvor-Andersen’s story in Geez issue 13. He’s a “hippie-sounding dude,” she says. And his article on bartering with a Starbucks clerk and others is “sort of a fun essay.” We’d agree. See her Shelf Life here, and Josh’s article here.
