In this next one, Marlys lays down her queer manifesto:
Lynda Barry also wrote the wonderful and horrifying novel, "Cruddy" which I highly recommend. This book is in the top 20 books I have ever read. Check out my aStore in the "all about me" part of the site for some of my book recommendations. She has also collected her online comic strip "One Hundred Demons" (from Salon.com) in a beautifully illustrated hardcover book which I think is quite enthralling. It's a great idea for a Christmas gift for all your literate friends. Lynda Barry writes honestly about childhood: to her it is an innocent time--but sometimes fraught with sadness or despair.
Here are some online samples: 1 2 3 and others.
Thanks to Rachel MacKnight for the strips.
