About the Author
Lynda Barry has worked as a painter, cartoonist, writer, illustrator, playwright, editor, commentator, and teacher and found that they are all very much alike. She is the author of the acclaimed graphic novel "One! Hundred! Demons!," the cartoonist behind the long-running "Ernie Pook's Comeek," and the author of the creative how-to memoir comic books "What It Is" and "Picture This." She lives in Wisconsin, where she is an assistant professor of art and a Discovery Fellow at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

“In Barry’s work, the transcendent power of the imagination awaits.” —Laura Miller, Salon.com (Unforgettable Graphic Novels of 2013)
