Stranger's Guide Issue 13 explores the Golden State from numerous vantage points. You’ll accompany an aspiring writer as he attempts to rent a Hollywood apartment that might just have been home to Al Pacino; you will cheer at the sidelines of a J-League basketball game, where Japanese Americans have built community; learn the history of San Francisco’s queer Latinx community and tour the Bay Area’s hidden trash heaps. You’ll also witness the devastation wrought by wildfires across the state, and meet people navigating life while experiencing homelessness. A beautiful and nuanced look at the most populous state in the US, this is a perfect gift for any one who’s ever had a California dream.
Stranger’s Guide is themed around a single destination—Russia, the Great Plains, Mexico City or Shanghai. By choosing to concentrate on just one place, Stranger’s Guide will allow us to stop, be still and delve into each location’s complexities. Readers will save these objets d’art on their bookshelves, lend them to friends and continue to page through the issues for years to come.Stranger’s Guide consists of intelligent and luminously written essays by noted writers. Its sleek design emphasizes art and photography.
Each issue is packed with maps, fiction and unconventional travel tips alongside beautiful, serious storytelling that takes you around the world. Our e-newsletter will offer a weekly mini-magazine, examining different themes across cultures. Throughout everything, beautiful, thoughtful narratives will guide you around the world.
“Stranger’s Guide is ideal for its luscious photo spreads, and its features go deep into subcultures that, until now, only the luckiest of strangers might discover.”
“…a one-of-a-kind travel magazine, with a literary vibe that calls to mind Lapham’s Quarterly and McSweeney‘s”
“A stunning magazine”
