Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic (Prebound)
October 2008 Indie Next List
“A stunning graphic memoir that weaves together the author's childhood and coming out and her father's secretive life and sudden death. Rife with literary allusions, this book is a boundary-smashing gem that redefined what a graphic novel could be. Hilarious, touching, and brilliant.”
— Sweet Pea Falherty, King's Books, Inc., Tacoma, WA
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.
