From Publishers Weekly Starred Review This autobiography by the author of the long running strip Dykes to Watch Out For deals with her childhood with a closeted gay father who was an English teacher and proprietor of the local funeral parlor the former allowed him access to teen boys Fun Home refers both to the funeral parlor where he put makeup on the corpses and arranged the flowers and the family s meticulously restored gothic revival house filled with gilt and lace where he liked to imagine himself a 19th century aristocrat The art has greater depth and sophistication that Dykes Bechdel s talent for intimacy and banter gains gravitas when used to describe a family in which a man s secrets make his wife a tired husk and overshadow his daughter s burgeoning womanhood and homosexuality His court trial over his dealings with a young boy pushes aside the importance of her early teen years Her coming out is pushed aside by his death probably a suicide The recursively told story which revisits the sites of tragic desperation again and again hits notes that resemble Jeanette Winterson at her best Bechdel presents her childhood as a still life with children that her father created and meditates on how prolonged untruth can become its own reality She s made a story that s quiet dignified and not easy to put down June Copyright Reed Business Information a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title
