WHAT IT IS in The Contra Costa Times

“Best of 2008: Graphic novels” / ContraCosta Times / Randy Myers / February 27, 2014

2. "What It Is," by Lynda Barry (Drawn and Quarterly, $24.95, 209 pages) At a time when buyouts, lay-offs and bailouts have become catch phrases of the year, it's comforting that Lynda Barry is here to extend an encouraging hand for us to tap into our creative powers . "What It Is" is a delightful how-to hybrid — a memoir, an activity book, and a motivational speech. Hope is still alive, and one place you can find it flourishing is within the folds of this lovely book.
