Synopsis:

Buddhism teaches that each person must overcome 100 demons in a lifetime. In One Hundred Demons, a collection of 20 autobiographical comic strip stories from Salons popular “Mothers Who Think” section, Lynda Barry wrestles with some of hers in her signature quirky, irrepressible voice. From “Dancing” and “Hate” to “Dogs” and “Magic,” the tales included here are at once hilarious and heartbreaking. As she delves into the delights and sorrows of adolescence, family, identity, and love, Barrys ear for dialogue, dead-on delivery, and painterly style showcase her considerable genius.

Sweet little book. The story is a nice collage of childhood memories and cartoons. I laughed several times throughout the reading, totally able to relate to several of the "demons." Lynda Barry spoke about this book at my university during the new student orientation and had us laughing the entire time. I now have an even deeper appreciation for her work after being able to hear her impersonation of some of the voices and other characterizations.

Ms. Barry has always been able to get at the heart of things and make one laugh and cry. There is no substitute here for just going through the book page by page and letting it overtake you.
Thank you once again, Powerpuff girl.
