Reviews

Praise for Lynda Barry: "Barry is, underneath the wonky handwriting and the quirky, naive drawings, a great memoirist . . . Like [Tobias] Wolff and [Dave] Eggers, she finds a tone that accommodates self-criticism and self-irony without tipping over into self-loathing . . . but what she is particularly good at is resonance." -"The New York Times " "Barry is not just a storyteller, she's an evangelist who urges people to pick up a pen-or a brush . . . and look at their own lives with fresh, forgiving eyes." -"San Francisco Chronicle " "America's leading cartoon artist of childhood angst . . . The precise rightness of Barry's smallest observation puts TV's "The Wonder Years" to shame." -"Entertainment Weekly " Praise for Lynda Barry: "Barry is, underneath the wonky handwriting and the quirky, naive drawings, a great memoirist . . .
