“Funny but very intellectual story about the author's life and self-discovery. Many literary allusions make it interesting.”

About this book

Wiki

Fun Home is a graphic memoir by American cartoonist Alison Bechdel, creator of the syndicated comic strip "Dykes to Watch Out For." Published in 2006, it tells the story of Bechdel's upbringing in a Pennsylvania funeral home run by her closeted gay father, who later dies in an automobile accident that Bechdel suspects is actually a suicide. 

Drawing heavily on literary references such as Proust, "Fun Home" explores the identity issues associated with sexuality as Bechdel herself struggles through her formative years, questioning her own sexuality. 

Reviews of "Fun Home" were overwhelmingly positive, with Time magazine naming the memoir one of the "10 Best Books of the Year" (2006).
