Welcome to another episode of Q4Q, where Haley meets with Alexis Macaluso, author and artist of the new book Deeply Personal: A Journey into Earth’s most curious classified ads—to cruise through some Craigslist ads and newspapers from the ‘60s, ‘80s, and ‘90s. Will you sign up for the “Gay” cruise, find an old Army buddy from ‘Nam, or maybe hook up with the Dirty Old Man from Maine? The sky's the limit at Q4Q!
Music written and strummed by Omar Nassar. Graphics by Bekah Rich.
You can find Alexis’s book Deeply Personal: A Journey into Earth’s most curious classified ads (Printed by Spooky House Press) on Bookshop.org and at select local bookstores. Find them both on Instagram at @Alexis_aquarian and @spookyhousepress
