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

  • UC-R Book Club selection
  • US author 
  • Originally published in 2007
  • Graphic novel
  • Review:  This is the second graphic novel that I have read.  It is very well done.  This is exactly as titled, a tragicomic.  The memoir is about family and it's secrets, about identity, serial and overall, about the tragedy of having good to hide one's self hood, about mental illness, and so much more.  I felt honored to read such an open, forthright account of one woman's family.  I personally believe that without humor life would be unbeatable, so I appreciate the manner in which this author tells her story!
