Lynda Barry singlehandedly created a literary genre all her own, the graphic-memoir-how-to, otherwise known as the bestselling, the acclaimed, but most importantly, the adored and the inspirational WHAT IT IS. The R.R. Donelley and Eisner Award-winning book posed, explored and answered the question "Do you think you can write?" Now with PICTURE THIS, Barry asks "Why do we stop drawing?" and "Why do we start?" It features the return of Barry's most beloved character, Marlys, and introduces a new one, the NearsightedMonkey.Like WHAT IT IS, PICTURE THIS is an inspirational, take home extension of Barry's traveling, continually sold out, and sought after workshop, Writing The Unthinkable.
LYNDA BARRY has worked as a painter, cartoonist, writer, illustrator, playwright, editor, commentator and teacher, and found they are very much alike. She lives in Wisconsin.

Editorial Reviews

What It Is is part diary, part showcase, part manifesto for the power of the imagination. It's bold and beautiful; angry and sad; joyful and loving and nervous.
