A sweet and brilliantly said memory from a comic cult favorite of the artist, marked by gothic twists and turns, a family of the funeral home, sexual anguish, and great books.This breakout book by Alison Bechdel is a dark and funny family story, pitch-perfectly illustrated with de Bechdel is deliciously gothic drawings.Like Marjane Satrapi Persepolis, it is a story exhilaratingly adapted to form memory graphics.Meet Alison Sr., a former expert in preservation and obsessive-conservative restorative disorder of the Victorian family, a third generation funeral director, a high school teacher of English, an ice-cold distant parent, and a homosexual in the closet who, as it turns out, is involved with his male students and a babysitter’s family.Through the story, which is in turn moving and fiercely funny, we are drawn into a complex girl’s nostalgia for her father.And yet, aside from polls on the dusting of coffins at the family property,u0022the house of pleasureu0022, like Alison and her brothers, the relationship reaches its most intimate expression by the code of books.When Alison comes out as homosexual, herself in her late teens, the outcome is quick, graphic — and redemptive.
