Ernie Pook

Okay, for the like, two people out there who don’t know who Lynda Barry is, run, do not walk to this week’s Reader and go straight to section 4 for this week’s Ernie Pook. I love anything she does, but one of my favorite subjects of hers is dogs. Sometimes she features Milton the Beat Poodle (Toilet! #1!) This week she has a dog astrology chart (Taurus’ Lucky Bark Style: Ceaseless) and “Ask Madam Lulu” in which “Ball-less in Baltimore” writes in about how he misses his balls so bad and asks if he will ever be reunited with them. She has several books, but I strongly recommend One! Hundred! Demons!
