this is the greatest!


Lynda Barry has a new book out called "What it is". Barry's book "The Greatest of Marlys!", is pretty much the best book ever, and I usually want to burn books with children in them. "What is is" was apparently rejected by Sasquatch Books, which I don't even understand, because my friend Novella used to work there, and Novella is pretty much the coolest chicken herder and goat milker of Oakland (I don't know any other goat milkers in Oakland, but I'm still certain Novella is the coolest and the coolest beekeeper). She has a book coming out soon too, and I bet it will have all kinds of stories about goatling butts, goat milk cappuccino, bunnies and biofuel.

I don't get Marlys. I think that might mean I'm dumb. Maybe because I've only ever seen single-panels in The Reader.

Ok, you're excused. But be sure to read my friend Novella's webpage. But be prepared because she often murders and eats her pets. But it's all very ethical. And she doesn't eat the bees. The bees are free-range.

meghan;
i eat bees. delish on toast with fresh termites.
i love lynda barry and i remember at the 'quatch, she would send faxs instead of make phone calls or email. they were eleborate, multi-page faxes. why on earth her proposal got rejected, i can't imagine....the editorial director, now publisher, gary luke loved her. so who knows...
