This is a critical biography of one of the pioneers of the alternative weekly comic strip. Best known for her long-running comic strip Ernie Pook's "Comeek", illustrated fiction ("Cruddy", "The Good Times Are Killing Me"), and graphic novels ("One! Hundred! Demons!"), the art of Lynda Barry has branched out to incorporate plays, paintings, radio commentary, and lectures. With a combination of seemingly simple, raw drawings and mature, eloquent text, Barry's oeuvre blurs the boundaries between fiction and memoir, comics and literary fiction, and fantasy and reality. "Lynda Barry" examines the artist's career and contributions to the field of comic art and beyond. The study specifically concentrates on Barry's recurring focus on figures of young girls, in a variety of mediums and genres. In tracing Barry's aesthetic and intellectual development, Kirtley reveals Barry's work to be groundbreaking in its understanding of femininity and feminism.
