Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nationally syndicated cartoonist Lynda Barry's moving, quirky and honest first novel about a young girl's coming of age--which has also been a hit off-Broadway play--is back in print, with new artwork by the author. In The Good Times Are Killing Me, Lynda Barry reveals her masterful way with story, memory, and feelings, and anyone who lingers in Edna Arkins's world will be the better for it.

Synopsis:

US

Synopsis:

In her first novel, a famed cartoonist tells the sensitive story of a young girl's coming of age in the 1960s. "Deft and deceptively simple . . . Ms. Barry has an impeccable ear, and this funny, intricate, and finally heartbreaking story exquisitely captures an American childhood".--The New York Times.

I think that this book is not only good, but very informational and has to do with the real world and also what is going on everywhere around the world. People still discriminate against black and white American's for their own reasons and people are getting hurt from it. Also, Edna feels kind of disconnected from her family and kids and teens do that out in the real world and I think that even if you do feel disconnected from anything really, you shouldn't just walk away from it and give up what could be great or even wonderful in the future. People need to realize that bad things are happening around the world and it needs to stop and no one is doing anything about it. That is how I feel.
