Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic  deals with Alison’s childhood with a closeted gay father, who was an English teacher and proprietor of the local funeral parlor.  Not the same humor that you find in her other works, but the same visual stimulation in this graphic novel. ISBN 9780618477944.

Fun Home and Dykes to Watch Out For have been translated into many languages. Alison has drawn comics for Slate, McSweeney’s, Entertainment Weekly, The New York Times Book Review, and Granta, among other places.

Alison Bechdel, author of Fun Home

Alison Bechdel began keeping a journal at the age of ten, and has been assiduously archiving her own life and times with words and pictures ever since. For twenty-five years she wrote and drew the comic strip Dykes to Watch Out For, a generational chronicle considered “one of the preeminent oeuvres in the comics genre, period,” Ms. Magazine.

Fun Home won an Eisner Award and was a National Book Critics Circle Award Finalist. Time Magazine named Fun Home the number one Best Book of 2006, calling the memoir about her father, “A masterpiece about two people who live in the same house but different worlds, and their mysterious debts to each other.”
