Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic
by Alison Bechdel
Staff Pick
Fun Home, in concert with Craig Thompson's Blankets, was one of the works that proved to my doubting eyes that graphic novels could reach heights every bit as poetic, moving, and magical as the finest prose. Darkly funny but wholly sincere, the story of... (read more)

Nightwood - With New Preface ((Rev)06 Edition)
