What it is by Lynda Barry ( Book )
5 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"How do objects summon memories? What do real images feel like? For decades, these types of questions have permeated the pages of Lynda Barry's compositions, with words attracting pictures and conjuring places through a pen that first and foremost keeps on moving. What it is demonstrates a tried-and-true creative method that is playful, powerful, and accessible to anyone with an inquisitive wish to write or to remember. Composed of completely new material, each page of Barry's first Drawn & Quarterly book is a full-color collage that is not only a gentle guide to this process but an invigorating example of exactly what it is: 'The ordinary is extraordinary'"--From publisher description

She's back! This is a Lynda Barry double-tall: the long-awaited collection of the best strips from her syndicated comics.

This oversized book presents the long strange journey through puberty and life that Marlys and company have experienced. Marlys's universe and galaxy are funny, rude, disturbing, tearful ... in short, very, very Lynda Barry

"The Freddie Stories traces a year in the life of Freddie, the youngest member of the dysfunctional Mullen family. These four-panel entries-- each representing an episode in the life of Freddie-- bring to life adolescence, pimples and all. No matter what happens, it all seems to go wrong for Freddie-- he's set up as an arsonist, mercilessly teased in school, and bossed around by classmates. With consummate skill, Lynda Barry writes about the cruelty of children at this most vulnerable age when the friends they make and the paths they choose can forever change their lives" -- from publisher's web site
