Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic by Alison Bechdel – Book Review

The musical of Fun Home was recently on in Melbourne and I saw and loved it, and immediately sought out the original graphic novel. It’s a touching and tragic story of Bechdel’s life growing up in a home with a family funeral business, of going to university and coming out, of her relationship in particular with her father and of his revelations and early death. It’s a fascinating way for her to have explored her past, both the musical and the graphic novel. I loved both so much.
