This book takes its place alongside the unnerving, memorable, darkly funny family memoirs of Augusten Burroughs and Mary Karr. It's a father-daughter tale perfectly suited to the graphic memoir form. Meet Alison's father, a historic preservation expert and obsessive restorer of the family's Victorian house, a third-generation funeral home director, a high school English teacher, an icily distant parent, and a closeted homosexual who, as it turns out, is involved with male students and a family babysitter. Through narrative that is alternately heartbreaking and fiercely funny, we are drawn into a daughter's complex yearning for her father. And yet, apart from assigned stints dusting caskets at the family-owned 'fun home,' as Alison and her brothers call it, the relationship achieves its most intimate expression through the shared code of books. When Alison comes out as homosexual herself in late adolescence, the denouement is swift, graphic, and redemptive.--From publisher description.… (altro)

I liked this. I've read almost no graphic novels so I don't have much to compare this one to, but I found it very interesting. I'm in New York right now and I'm seeing the musical based on this story so I wanted to read the book first. I liked the way the story was told. The story did switch time periods a lot but I was always able to follow along. Ou could tell that this was a very personal story and that made this book a lot more interesting. While I was reading it I couldn't really imagine how someone could take this story and turn it into a musical so I'm excited to see how the musical will play out. ( )

Really loved this graphic novel about Alison Bechdel's childhood and in particular her father. It's an unconventional upbringing in a decaying mansion, in a funeral home, but also her father is a closeted gay man who has problematic relationships with teenagers. So there is a lot of ground to cover. The book has a lightness of touch whilst dealing with serious issues, and gives a real feel of the authors own questions and issues being worked over during the course of the book. ( )

I think listening to songs from the musical gave me false memories of this being happier than it was, but there isn’t really much “comic” in this tragicomic, it’s mostly a tragedy, unless she means literal comic books and not tragic-comedy in which case that joke went over my head the first time I read it!

Anyway!! I really enjoyed revisiting this. There's a lot more I understood now (as a lesbian and as someone who's more well read) than I did in high school. I appreciated the narration a lot more. I kind of wondered though, would this have worked as not a comic? The art style isn't my favorite, and I didn't think that the form necessarily contributed as much to the narrative as it should have. Sure, some dramatic irony when she's describing a book her father liked and illustrating life events that parallel that... but it does get repetitive. I think I liked Persepolis (the only other comic-memoir i've read) more... It was also kind of hard to keep track of how old the characters were, because it's extremely nonlinear and has a lot of redundancies. I guess writing a comic book that feels stream-of-conciousness is a pretty impressive feat though due to the nature of the medium. ( )

This is a well-done memoir. It's funny. It's poignant. It made me feel not well read enough by quoting Proust and numerous other writers. It was worth reading. ( )

A little too much information. Or too little? I read it after hearing an interview. Made me want to read more Dykes to Watch Out For. ( )

Bechdel’s style is straightforward. Her detailed drawings strive to present what she remembers accurately and with detail. The book is black-and-white with a blue-grey watercolor wash that provides depth and adds to the feeling of memory.
