Fun home : a family tragicomic

This book takes its place alongside the unnerving, memorable, darkly funny family memoirs of Augusten Burroughs and Mary Karr. It's a father-daughter tale perfectly suited to the graphic memoir form. Meet Alison's father, a historic preservation expert and obsessive restorer of the family's Victorian house, 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 male students and a family babysitter. Through narrative that is alternately heartbreaking and fiercely funny, we are drawn into a daughter's complex yearning for her father. And yet, apart from assigned stints dusting caskets at the family-owned 'fun home, ' as Alison and her brothers call it, the relationship achieves its most intimate expression through the shared code of books. When Alison comes out as homosexual herself in late adolescence, the denouement is swift, graphic, and redemptive.--From publisher description.

  • "Das Buch erzählt von einer jungen Frau, die einem Familiengeheimnis auf die Spur kommt. Sensationell ist die Form, in der die Geschichte erzählt wird: In Worten und Bildern, die sich zu einem Meisterwerk der Comic-Kunst zusammenfügen. Alison Bechdel, Autorin und Erzählerin von >>Fun Home<<, verstand in ihrer Jugend nie, warum ihr Vater, Bestattungsunternehmer und Englischlehrer an der örtlichen High School, offenbar seine Bücher mehr liebte als seine Familie. Sie leben in einem Haus aus dem Jahr 1867, stilvoll und detailversessen restauriert vom Vater. Als Alison 19 Jahre alt ist, kommt ihr Vater ums Leben. Selbstmord oder Unfall? Das wird sich nicht mehr klären lassen. Was aber ans Licht kommt, ist ein Geheimnis, das Vater und Tochter teilen: Beide sind sie homosexuell. Mit diesem Wissen nähert sich Alison in >>Fun Home<< ihrem Vater, den sie schon vor seinem Tod vermisste wie ein Amputierter sein fehlendes Glied."
  • "A memoir done in the form of a graphic novel by a cult favorite comic artist offers a darkly funny family portrait that details her relationship with her father--a funeral home director, high school English teacher, and closeted homosexual."@en
  • ""Récit d'inspiration autobiographique qui évoque l'enfance et l'adolescence d'une jeune Américaine qui découvre peu à peu son attirance pour les femmes. Une part importante du récit est consacrée à ses relations ambiguës avec son père dont elle décèle l'homosexualité refoulée. Nourrie d'allusions littéraires, une solide analyse psychologique qui aborde le sujet avec franchise et tact. Dessin en bichromie au trait épuré."--SDM."
