J T, February 24, 2007 (view all comments by J T)
Brilliant, bittersweet, captivating, funny, deep, & insightful, this collection of demons is worth dressing up for parade. Lynda Barry at her finest! She even closes with an unpretentious how-to of Chinese brush painting, encouraging you to grind your own inks to get your own demons onto any available page. Now if I could just capture some of my immigrant mom's half-crazed premonitions and stories as perfectly as Lynda depicts the Aswang, or recollect my dear friend's suicide the way Lynda sees those nectarines on the windowsill.
