Alison had an unusual childhood, although, it wouldn’t be until later in life that she would come to appreciate exactly how unusual her childhood really was. As she prepares to chronicle her graphic memoir, American cartoonist Alison Bechdel reflects on the peculiarity of growing up in the funeral home of a small Pennsylvania town, the comprehension of her own sexuality, and the omnipotence of her late father’s secret life. Fun Home is a tragicomedy with love and brutal honesty.
