Read full description of the books Big Ideas: Explanations, True Stories, Love, Nutrition, Advice, and More:
I read somewhere Lynda Barry met Matt Groening early in undergrad because some mutual friend said that they HAD to meet each other. Wish I was there to see it. Barry's humor in this media surpasses Groening's and is as his hysterical as what he's done with The Simpsons, and I really mean it. If you like John Waters' films and The Far Side and Woody Allen weird-tenderness, (plus a dollop of feminine-nerdy glee), or even if you don't, she's the bomb, and Big Ideas is the tops.
Everyday experiences are rendered as sagas (think "Cathy"...no don't. This stuff's just out of the league). The cartoons are terrifying. You will chuckle smuggly watching funny looking weirdos in awkward life positions, doing really un-graceful and goofy things, until you realize that happened to you just last week, and how did this cartoonist know?! The ensemble cast of Jane and Joe Schmos are touchingly, humanly (grossly?) drawn - there's, like, stubble and funny looking people making out.
If I am anxious or sad or bored or tired or pissed-off or heart-broken or happen to notice it on the shelf and have a half a second I read this book starting with the POODLE WITH A MOWHAWK bit and then opening to any page. My self-identified weirdo flaws are suddenly badges of humaness, and I'm relieved that it's not just me who notices the world is just plain Bizarre.
