Roberta Rohbeson has a cruddy life. Her mother is abusive,but that is nothing compared to what her father is like. This is the incredible, funny, icky, poignant story of a trip she took with her father.... The Good Times Are Killing Me
This is one of the funniest, saddest books I've ever read. Lynda Barry has a great ear for the way children talk and a keen sense of how their minds work. I've never read any author who paints such an accurate picture of what it was really like to be a child, since I think most of us tend to recall only good things or only bad things. This book will remind you how complex your life was, even then.
