One Hundred Demons

by Lynda Barry Author

NAME THAT DEMON!!! Freaky boyfriends! Shouting Moms! Innocence betrayed! Rotten things we've done that will haunt us forever! These are some of the pickled demons Lynda Barry's stories serve up comic-strip style, mixing the true and un-true into something she calls "autobifictionalography." Inspired by a 16th-century Zen monk's painting of a hundred demons chasing each other across a long scroll, and encouraged by a 20th-century editor at, Barry's demons jump out of these pages and double-dare you to speak their names.
