So, are you?

A colleague has just read and put on our Recommended stand the latest graphic novel by renowned cartoonist Alison Bechdel, who wrote and drew  Dykes to Watch Out For for 25 years. A couple of years ago, Bechdel wrote and drew the bestselling memoir Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic, which explored growing up in a funeral home and her relationship with her closeted gay father. She has turned her loving and honest attention, pen and wit to her mother – a frustrated artist and unhappy woman who stopped touching or kissing her daughter goodnight when Alison was seven.
Are You My Mother? is, my colleague says: “a slightly harder read than the amazing memoir about her father but well worth any patience invested”.
