Praise for What It Is:
“The collages in legendary cartoonist Lynda Barry’s What It Is are a bathysphere-like odyssey through the depths of her funky subconscious.” —ELISSA SCHAPPELL, Vanity Fair
“Meditations, stories and images float past in a random fashion, segueing between darkness and hope, or adulthood and childhood, the way they might in dreams or memory.” —CAROL KINO, The New York Times
“What It Is is part diary, part showcase, part manifesto for the power of the imagination. It’s bold and beautiful; angry and sad; joyful and loving and nervous.” —JULIA KELLER, Chicago Tribune
