Just steps away from sponsored fun runs, endurance challenges, and ultra-marathons, in Tamara Johnson’s Not Far From Normal, San Diego’s hidden residents play games of survival side-by-side with official city events. However one feels about the rise of dark tourism, it has never been necessary to travel far to experience either the dangerous or the exotic. Part poetry, part photo essay, part field guide, Not Far From Normal tells the secret history of San Diego’s parks and missions as told by their current inhabitants. From the crash of PSA Flight#182 to the “I don’t like Mondays” school shooting and other dark episodes that don’t make it into San Diego’s official story, Not Far From Normal is a compelling history of everyday life on the wild side of Southern California.
