DescriptionIn this groundbreaking, bestselling graphic memoir, Alison Bechdel charts her fraught relationship with her late father. In her hands, personal history becomes a work of amazing subtlety and power, written with controlled force and enlivened with humor, rich literary allusion, and heartbreaking detail. Distant and exacting, Bruce Bechdel was an English teacher and director of the town funeral home, which Alison and her family referred to as the "Fun Home." It was not until college that Alison, who had recently come out as a lesbian, discovered that her father was also gay. A few weeks after this revelation, he was dead, leaving a legacy of mystery for his daughter to resolve.

Oh My Books! Review
Lately I've been reading a few graphic novels and comics, very simple and light. But Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic is another level. Family drama. Death. Suicide. Homosexuality. This graphic novel tells the story about what is was to the author, Alison Bechdel, growing up in these circumstances.
It wasn't what I was expecting, I read the spanish edition and the cover is very bright. Maybe that's why I expected something light. But I get why it's considered a great graphic novel! It's very realistic...it must have been hard to write about her life. I read the first chapter and didn't really get me at first, but a few days later I started reading it again because I was curious and finish it in only a couple of hours.
Totally recommended to anyone who wants to read a realistic and deep graphic novel. I'd like to read more from this author. by Maria Guajardo (GABY)
