Fun home : a family tragicomic by

Like many father, mine could occasionally be prevailed on for a spot of ‘airplane’.

This is the memoir of Alison Bechdel, her recollections of growing up in an emotionally-distant family, the role of literature in her, and her father’s, life, her identifying as a lesbian at college and coming out, by letter, to her parents.
