Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic by Alison Bechdel
Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic

quiack, January 30, 2013

Amazing book! Alison Bechdel is a wonderful writer/drawer. This autobiographic novel is incredibly touching and will strike a chord with anybody who has ever struggled to understand his parents.
She tells the story of her coming out, which turns out to be an echo of her father's story, a closeted homosexual. Her non linear storytelling is brilliant, adding layers of meaning to the otherwise simple story of a coming out. And, to be honest, I had to read the book quite a few times to get them all. To put it in a nutshell, just buy the damn book!
