Item Description: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Jun 2007, 2007. Taschenbuch. Book Condition: Neu. 229x154x14 mm. Neuware - A fresh and brilliantly told memoir from a cult favorite comic artist, marked by gothic twists, a family funeral home, sexual angst, and great books. This breakout book by Alison Bechdel is a darkly funny family tale, pitch-perfectly illustrated with Bechdel's sweetly gothic drawings. Like Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis, it's a story exhilaratingly suited to graphic memoir form. Meet Alison's father, a historic preservation expert and obsessive restorer of the family's Victorian home, a third-generation funeral home director, a high school English teacher, an icily distant parent, and a closeted homosexual who, as it turns out, is involved with his male students and a family babysitter. Through narrative that is alternately heartbreaking and fiercely funny, we are drawn into a daughter's complex yearning for her father. And yet, apart from assigned stints dusting caskets at the family-owned 'fun home,' as Alison and her brothers call it, the relationship achieves its most intimate expression through the shared code of books. When Alison comes out as homosexual herself in late adolescense, the denouement is swift, graphic -- and redemptive. 232 pp. Englisch. Bookseller Inventory # 9780618871711

Time Magazine Der größte literarische Überraschungserfolg des Jahres 2006 aus den USA erzählt von einer jungen Frau, die einem Familiengeheimnis auf die Spur kommt. Sensationell ist die Form, in der die Geschichte erzählt wird: In Worten und Bildern, die sich zu einem Meisterwerk der Comic-Kunst zusammenfügen.Alison Bechdel, Autorin und Erzählerin von Fun Home, verstand in ihrer Jugend nie, warum ihr Vater, Bestattungsunternehmer und Englischlehrer an der örtlichen Highschool, offenbar seine Bücher mehr liebte als seine Familie. Sie leben in einem Haus aus dem Jahr 1867, stilvoll und detailversessen restauriert vom Vater. Als Alison 19 Jahre alt ist, kommt ihr Vater ums Leben. Selbstmord oder Unfall Das wird sich nicht mehr klären lassen. Was aber ans Licht kommt, ist ein Geheimnis, das Vater und Tochter teilen: Beide sind sie homosexuell. Mit diesem Wissen nähert sich Alison in Fun Home ihrem Vater, den sie schon vor seinem Tod schmerzlich vermisste.In Kapiteln, die nach Klassikern der Weltliteratur benannt sind, umkreist Alison Bechdel die Zeit vor und nach dem Tod des Vaters. Dabei zieht sie alle Register: Sie bedient sich bei der griechischen Mythologie ebenso wie bei der Existenzphilosophie, bei Oscar Wilde, Marcel Proust und im Trivialmythenschatz der amerikanischen Kultur. Heraus kommt ein irrwitzig komisches, melancholisches und kluges Buch einer Tochter, die dem Vater in Wort und Bild die Liebe nachträgt.Fun Home wurde vom Time Magazine noch vor den jüngsten Romanen von Richard Ford und Cormac McCarthy zum besten literarischen Buch des Jahres 2006 gewählt, zahlreiche andere Würdigungen folgten.Alison Bechdels Geschichte ist der erste Comic aus dem Hause Kiepenheuer & Witsch. 240 pp. Deutsch.

Item Description: Kiepenheuer & Witsch Gmbh Jan 2008, 2008. Buch. Book Condition: Neu. 21x15.1x cm. Neuware - 'Das beste Buch des Jahres.' Time Magazine Der größte literarische Überraschungserfolg des Jahres 2006 aus den USA erzählt von einer jungen Frau, die einem Familiengeheimnis auf die Spur kommt. Sensationell ist die Form, in der die Geschichte erzählt wird: In Worten und Bildern, die sich zu einem Meisterwerk der Comic-Kunst zusammenfügen.Alison Bechdel, Autorin und Erzählerin von Fun Home, verstand in ihrer Jugend nie, warum ihr Vater, Bestattungsunternehmer und Englischlehrer an der örtlichen Highschool, offenbar seine Bücher mehr liebte als seine Familie. Sie leben in einem Haus aus dem Jahr 1867, stilvoll und detailversessen restauriert vom Vater. Als Alison 19 Jahre alt ist, kommt ihr Vater ums Leben. Selbstmord oder Unfall Das wird sich nicht mehr klären lassen. Was aber ans Licht kommt, ist ein Geheimnis, das Vater und Tochter teilen: Beide sind sie homosexuell. Mit diesem Wissen nähert sich Alison in Fun Home ihrem Vater, den sie schon vor seinem Tod schmerzlich vermisste.In Kapiteln, die nach Klassikern der Weltliteratur benannt sind, umkreist Alison Bechdel die Zeit vor und nach dem Tod des Vaters. Dabei zieht sie alle Register: Sie bedient sich bei der griechischen Mythologie ebenso wie bei der Existenzphilosophie, bei Oscar Wilde, Marcel Proust und im Trivialmythenschatz der amerikanischen Kultur. Heraus kommt ein irrwitzig komisches, melancholisches und kluges Buch einer Tochter, die dem Vater in Wort und Bild die Liebe nachträgt.Fun Home wurde vom Time Magazine noch vor den jüngsten Romanen von Richard Ford und Cormac McCarthy zum besten literarischen Buch des Jahres 2006 gewählt, zahlreiche andere Würdigungen folgten.Alison Bechdels Geschichte ist der erste Comic aus dem Hause Kiepenheuer & Witsch. 240 pp. Deutsch.

Item Description: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Jun 2007, 2007. Taschenbuch. Book Condition: Neu. 229x154x14 mm. Neuware - A fresh and brilliantly told memoir from a cult favorite comic artist, marked by gothic twists, a family funeral home, sexual angst, and great books. This breakout book by Alison Bechdel is a darkly funny family tale, pitch-perfectly illustrated with Bechdel's sweetly gothic drawings. Like Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis, it's a story exhilaratingly suited to graphic memoir form. Meet Alison's father, a historic preservation expert and obsessive restorer of the family's Victorian home, a third-generation funeral home director, a high school English teacher, an icily distant parent, and a closeted homosexual who, as it turns out, is involved with his male students and a family babysitter. Through narrative that is alternately heartbreaking and fiercely funny, we are drawn into a daughter's complex yearning for her father. And yet, apart from assigned stints dusting caskets at the family-owned 'fun home,' as Alison and her brothers call it, the relationship achieves its most intimate expression through the shared code of books. When Alison comes out as homosexual herself in late adolescense, the denouement is swift, graphic -- and redemptive. 232 pp. Englisch. Bookseller Inventory # 9780618871711
