Alison Bechdel

A fresh and brilliantly told memoir from a cult favorite comic artist, marked by gothic twists, a family funeral home, sexual angst, and great books. This breakout book by Alison Bechdel is a darkly funny family tale, pitch-perfectly illustrated with Bechdel's sweetly gothic drawings. Like Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis, it's a story exhilaratingly suited to graphic memoir form. Meet Alison's father, a historic preservation expert and obsessive restorer of the family's Victorian home, a third-generation funeral home director, a high school English teacher, an icily distant parent, and a closeted homosexual who, as it turns out, is involved with his male students and a family babysitter. Through narrative that is alternately heartbreaking and fiercely funny, we are drawn into a daughter's complex yearning for her father. And yet, apart from assigned stints dusting caskets at the family-owned "fun home," as Alison and her brothers call it, the relationship achieves its most intimate expression through the shared code of books. When Alison comes out as homosexual herself in late adolescense, the denouement is swift, graphic -- and redemptive.

Alison Bechdel

Una familia tragicómica, el exitoso relato de maduración de Alison Bechdel, que ha sido calificado de "proeza de retrato familiar" y de "raro y original ejemplo de por qué las novelas gráficas han dado que hablar en la literatura americana". Fun Home fue nombrado Mejor libro del año por Time, The New York Times y People. El padre de Alison es un profesor de inglés obsesionado por restaurar con antigüedades su casa victoriana y es dueño de una vieja funeraria. En consonancia con la frialdad de su entorno, es un padre distante y tiránico que mantiene en secreto su verdadera inclinación sexual. A través de esta narrativa gráfica, cómica y desoladora, nos acercamos a los complejos de Alison, que lucha en soledad por encontrar su lugar en el mundo y redimir su precaria relación familiar. La crítica ha opinado: "Fun Home debe ser el trabajo más ingeniosamente elaborado y un ejemplo de prolija elocuencia biográfica [...] una obra pionera del género" -The New York Times- ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Through narrative that is alternately heartbreaking and funny, readers are drawn into a daughters complex yearning for her father. Apart from assigned stints dusting caskets at the family-owned "fun home," the relationship achieves its most intimate expression through the shared code of books.
