Poignant and funny
Benjamin Munson ( | Columbus, OH | 01/04/1999

"Lynda Barry is one of the great storytellers of our time. Her cartoon anthologies are not to be missed. This cassette contains about 12 true ("except the ones that are big, honking lies") stories of her life, mostly her youth. Each one contains Barry's characteristic combination of pathos and belly-laughs. I think I've listened to this cassette about 20 times, and it never fails to entertain me. Buy it, buy it, buy it!"

"Lynda Barry is the absolute Queen of the entire Universe and everything surrounding it. Her stories captivate like the juciest of gossip, and conjure goosebumps at just the right times. She doesn't mind hittin' hard, but picks ya back up, dusts you off, and even makes you cry from laughin' before she strikes again with the suddenness of an ice cold shower. Shivers, pure shivers are her main form of communication. She totally rocks the entire universe from top to bottom with the sweet soul sounds of the seventies."

"If you know who Lynda Barry is, you don't need to read this review. You either own a copy of this cd, or want one badly.

Lynda Barry's WONDERFUL collection of stories, songs, and DROP-DEAD-FUNNY answering machine messages, is easily one of my most treasured recordings. I've owned my copy for years and still play it regularly on my iPod.

Lynda is better known for her books, plays, and syndicated comic strip, Ernie Pook's Comeek. Like her other work, the stories here are filled with a rare authenticity and humanity. She can make you laugh and then suddenly tear up as you recognise something from your own childhood, long forgotten.

I sincerely consider her one of the most important American artists of my generation. I attended her first book signing back in 1981 and have remained one of her many loyal fans. I would also encourage anyone to check out her books "Cruddy" and "The Good Times Are Killing Me". The collections of her comic strip are a joy too.

If you like This American Life, David Sedaris, Sarah Vowell, or just excellent story telling, you will be so glad to own this cd.
