Revue de presse :

"In this brilliant, bleakly hilarious memoir in comic-book form, Bechdel combines stories from her emotionally barren but weirdly fascinating childhood with elegant allusions to Proust and Joyce to make a gripping story of filial sleuthery and, in the end, hard-earned acceptance of how much of her father she finds in herself." -Time

"FUN HOME is an intricate document of a childhood . . . with the gorgeous writing and stunning drawings in tandem." --Los Angeles Times

"A splendid autobiography . . . refreshingly open and generous." — Entertainment Weekly

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. . .The artist's work is so absorbing you feel you are living in her world." - New York Times Book Review

"(B)eautifully combines the mundane with the macabre, adding doses of wry, poignant humor on every page." -The Washington Post

"The great writing of the twenty-first century may well be found in graphic novels and nonfiction.  . . . Alison Bechdel's Fun Home is an astonishing advertisement for this emerging literary form."  — USA Today

Présentation de l'éditeur :

From the best-selling author of Fun Home, Time magazine’s No. 1 Book of the Year, a brilliantly told graphic memoir of Alison Bechdel becoming the artist her mother wanted to be.

Alison Bechdel’s Fun Home was a pop culture and literary phenomenon. Now, a second thrilling tale of filial sleuthery, this time about her mother: voracious reader, music lover, passionate amateur actor. Also a woman, unhappily married to a closeted gay man, whose artistic aspirations simmered under the surface of Bechdel's childhood . . . and who stopped touching or kissing her daughter good night, forever, when she was seven. Poignantly, hilariously, Bechdel embarks on a quest for answers concerning the mother-daughter gulf. It's a richly layered search that leads readers from the fascinating life and work of the iconic twentieth-century psychoanalyst Donald Winnicott, to one explosively illuminating Dr. Seuss illustration, to Bechdel’s own (serially monogamous) adult love life. And, finally, back to Mother—to a truce, fragile and real-time, that will move and astonish all adult children of gifted mothers.
