In this groundbreaking, bestselling graphic memoir, Alison
Bechdel charts her fraught relationship with her late
father. In her hands, personal history becomes a work of
amazing subtlety and power, written with controlled force
and enlivened with humor, rich literary allusion, and
Distant and exacting, Bruce Bechdel was an English teacher
and director of the town funeral home, which Alison and her
family referred to as the "Fun Home." It was not until
college that Alison, who had recently come out as a lesbian,
discovered that her father was also gay. A few weeks after
this revelation, he was dead, leaving a legacy of mystery
for his daughter to resolve.
