This program is open to everyone who has borrowing privileges at the Leatherby Libraries and a current library account, including students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Members select books from the Leatherby Libraries and receive prizes upon submission of their first review. The only requirement is that books must be obtained through the Leatherby Libraries.

Fun Home : A Family Tragicomic

TitleFun home : a family tragicomic
AuthorAlison Bechdel
Call NumberPN6727.B3757 Z46 2007
Location1st Floor Graphic Novel
Book ReviewAlison Bechdel managed to insert a lot of humor into her graphic memoir. She described the odds and ends of growing up in an immaculately restored house with a family who inherited a funeral home business. Bechdel's father was present in her life, yet very detached due to his own identity issues which were not made clear to her until she was in college. This story is tense and somber, but Bechdel is able to soften this with her humor, illustration and writing.
