Writer: Alison Bechdel
Artist: Alison Blechdel
Alison Bechdel's Fun Home was a pop culture and literary phenomenon.
Now, a second thrilling tale of filial sleuthery, this time about her mother: voracious reader, music lover, passionate amateur actor.
Also a woman, unhappily married to a closeted gay man, whose artistic aspirations simmered under the surface of Bechdel's childhood -- and who stopped touching or kissing her daughter goodnight, forever, when she was seven.
Poignantly, hilariously, Bechdel embarks on a quest for answers concerning the mother-daughter gulf.
