Book Review: Chicago Gets Four Stars

Gordon Meyer

Local writer Joe Mason (of The Chicago Reader, among other publications) has new zine titled Chicago Gets Four Stars that offers succinct and interesting summaries of offbeat Chicago history. Mason has chosen (if the book were more expensive I’d say “curated”) some really good stories, and tells them in a way that makes you feel like you’re two old friends chatting over a beer at a local pub. Even if you’ve heard some of the bits before, he’ll shed new light and make you nod your head with respect for the telling. I’m happy to give Chicago Gets Four Stars …wait for it…five stars. (The only downside is that his passionate argument for Chicago’s claim to the jibarito might make you hungry to eat one.) Get your copy of Mason’s zine at Quimby’s.
