Lynda Barry Rocks!
I've been a big fan of Lynda Barry for a number of years. We used to read her comic, Ernie Pook's Comeek every week in the Village Voice. I love Marlys.
So when I heard on the radio this morning that she was going to be on Talk of the Nation, my little ears perked right up. It was a short interview, but classic Lynda.
I have to say that this woman stole my heart when we went over to a book reading/signing she was doing in Oakland a few years back. The first thing she did was start to throw candy out into the audience. She bonked Steve on the head with a little box of Nerds. That did it for me. Nerds are Steve's favorite.
She's promoting her new book, What it is. It's about creativity and the creative process. We stopped at our local bookstore this evening, and they had a copy...and it was 20% off, so I just had to get it.
We also went to see the Sex and the City movie tonight. Highly entertaining and fun.
