Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

An unusual memoir done in the form of a graphic novel by a cult favorite comic artist offers a darkly funny family portrait that details her relationship with her father, a historic preservation expert dedicated to restoring the family's Victorian home, funeral home director, high-school English teacher, and closeted homosexual.


Review:

"In this brilliant, bleakly hilarious memoir in comic-book form, [Alison] Bechdel combines stories from her emotionally barren but weirdly fascinating childhood with elegant allusions to Proust and Joyce to make a gripping story of filial sleuthery and, in the end, hard earned acceptance."

Lev Grossman, Time, 05/29/2006

Review:

"[Alison Bechdel's] language and drawings are impressively sensitive to the details of her physical experience and to the trickier folds of her own self-consciousness; she dives over and over into the cloudy waters of her past, swimming deeper every time....FUN HOME is a beautiful, assured piece of work."

Douglas Wolk, Salon, 06/05/2006
