Lynda Barry is just the greatest. This is the first time I realized each of the kids has a distinct voice when they narrate. Sharp, I know, after reading three of her other books. I love how her comics are so tender without being sentimental at all, ever. And funny. And something about the, to me, extreme ugliness of her drawing makes the whole experience ring more true.
