Synopsis:

Review:

"Like [Tobias] Wolff and [Dave] Eggars, [Linda Barry] finds a tone that accommodates self-criticism and self-irony without tripping over into self-loathing (although her self-portraits can be pretty fierce, and are invariably pimply), but what she is particularly good at is resonance. These stories all contain little grenades of meaning that tend to explode just after you've read the last line. One can deduce that Barry had a tough childhood, but she prefers to concentrate on the details that connect rather than exclude--it's and innate talent, and one that separates the artists from the self-pitying bores."

Nick Hornby, New York Times Book Review, 12/22/2002

Review:

"[A] book of gorgeous, hilarious, weirdly poignant comic strips/short stories."

Lev Grossman, Time, 12/19/2005

Book Description: Sasquatch Books, United States, 2005. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 158 x 241 mm. Brand New Book. One Hundred Demons collects a series of memoiristic strips that appeared in Salon s popular Mothers Who Think section. Here are 20 stories told in Lynda Barry s distinctive cartoon-narrative style that delve into the funk and sweetness of love, family, adolescence, race and the hood, identity -- all the forces that made her the wreck she is today. Barry distinguishes these stories with her pitch-perfect sense of the way young people talk and think and her ability to casually render childhood s cruelties in luminous, unsparing detail. From her nattering and intolerant/loving Filipina grandmother to the ex-boyfriend from hell who had lice, One Hundred Demons paints a memorable picture of a gifted girl whose life is intersected by a cast of crazies. Hailed for its shimmering watercolor images and called by Time magazine a work of art as well as literature, this collection makes an important addition to the genre Barry has sardonically christened autobiofictionalography.
