  • Great graphic novel Jul 8, 2007
    by Emily11507

    Bechdel is an amazing graphic novelist--in Fun Home, she showcases all of the idiosyncrasies of family life while developing characters that are real rather than (ironically?) cartoonish as one might expect in a graphic novel.

  • A Life in Words and Pictures Apr 3, 2007
    by MplsArtiste

    Bechdel, best known for her "Dykes to Watch Out For" comic strip, truly shines in this fascinating story of her growing up in a highly less-than-all-American family. While I was
    never a devoted fan of DTWOF, she won me over in this wonderfully sustained narrative about an artist in a house full of messed up artists. At the core of the story is her attempt to come to terms with her talented, distant father----a study in contradictions, emotional selfishness and sexual confusion. The artist has much rich material to mine here, and she is fully up to the task. Her confident illustration style and storytelling gifts combine to make this one of the best graphic memoirs around.
