Présentation de l'éditeur :

DISCOVER the BESTSELLING GRAPHIC MEMOIR behind the SENSATIONAL LONDON MUSICAL

The award-winning musical adaptation that took America by storm now playing to five star reviews at the Young Vic | ‘A sapphic graphic treat’ The Times

A moving and darkly humorous family tale, pitch-perfectly illustrated with Alison Bechdel's gothic drawings. If you liked Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis you’ll love this.

Meet Alison's father, a historic preservation expert and obsessive restorer of the family's Victorian home, a third-generation funeral home director, a high-school English teacher, an icily distant parent, and a closeted homosexual who, as it turns out, is involved with his male students and the family babysitter. When Alison comes out as homosexual herself in late adolescence, the denouement is swift, graphic, and redemptive.

Interweaving between childhood memories, college life and present day, and through narrative that is equally heartbreaking and fiercely funny, Alison looks back on her complex relationship with her father and finds they had more in common than she ever knew.

----
'A groundbreaking masterpiece' The Independent
'A finely woven blend of yearning and euphoric fantasy' Evening Standard

Revue de presse :

"Bulging with literary allusions from Proust to Scott Fitzgerald, Fun Home is a book that demands to be read again and again." (Royal Academy Magazine)

"It is a pioneering work, pushing two genres (comics and memoir) in multiple new directions, with panels that combine the detail and technical proficiency of R. Crumb with a seriousness, emotional complexity and innovation completely its own... A comic book for lovers of words! Bechdel's rich language and precise images combine to create a lush piece of work - a memoir where concision and detail are melded for maximum, obsessive density" (New York Times)

"Bechdel's memoir offers a graphic narrative of uncommon richness, depth, literary resonance and psychological complexity . . . shares [much] in spirit with the work of Mary Karr, Tobias Wolff, and other contemporary memoirists of considerable literary accomplishement" (Kirkus Reviews)

"The recursively told story, which revisits the sites of tragic desperation again and again, hits notes that resemble Jeanette Winterson at her best... She's made a story that's quiet, dignified and not easy to put down" (Publishers Weekly)

"One of the very best graphic novels ever" (Booklist)
