Fun home. Alison Bechdel, 2006.

Butler PN6727.B3757 Z46 2006

Bechdel’s memoir, a finalist for the 2006 National Book Critics Circle Award, tells of her unusual childhood, growing up on the site of the family funeral business.  Her coming to terms with her own homosexuality is illuminated by revelations of her father’s not-entirely-closeted homosexual affairs.
