Summary
"In One Hundred Demons, a collection of 20 autobiographical comic strip stories, Lynda Barry wrestles with some of hers in her signature quirky, irrepressible voice. From "Dancing" and "Hate" to "Dogs" and "Magic," the tales included here are at once hilarious and heartbreaking. As she delves into the delights and sorrows of adolescence, family, identity, and love, Barry's ear for dialogue, dead-on delivery, and painterly style showcase her considerable genius."--
Summary
A collection of twenty comic strips celebrates the Buddhist challenge to overcome one hundred demons in a lifetime with such offerings as "Dancing", "Dogs", and "Magic", which follow the author's misadventures with adolescence, family, and relationships
