We are pleased to announce the occassion of printing our first Lumpen novel. It is by Brian Mier, a long time contibutor and Editor of Lumpen magazine.

Brian Mier grew up on the North Side of Chicago and has lived in Brazil since 1999.  He is currently a policy analyst at the Centro de Direitos Economicos e Sociais. From 2007 to 2012 he was a member of the national directorate of the Brazilian National Urban Reform Forum (FNRU). He has worked with the Landless Peasants Movement (MST) and was a two time speaker at the World Social Forum. Brian has written extensively on Brazilian news and culture for the underground press over the years. His writing has appeared in Lumpen and Vice, and elsewhere.


About SlowRide

A double-trailer rig winds its way slowly through the Brazilian countryside.  Zeca, an old-fashioned, macho truck driver decides to break up with his wife. As he drives along, his niece ridicules his sexist ways. Slow Ride is an anti-adventure travel story created through mixing audio transcriptions of a real truck ride with fictional and expository passages. Inspired by Sam Miller's "Delhi: Adventures in a Megacity", it finds the humor in mundane events and offers a window into Brazil, a country struggling to reconcile the old with the new.
