Fun Home - Alison Bechdel

Graphic memoir written and drawn by Alison Bechdel.

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.

Through narrative that is alternately heartbreaking and fiercely funny, we are drawn into a daughter's complex yearning for her father. When Alison comes out as homosexual herself in late adolescence, the denouement is swift, graphic, and redemptive.

We'll also be having a bit of general discussion about the months comic releases so feel free to bring along any comic books along with you.

We will be meeting in the upstairs at The Crown at 7.30 if you can't find us feel free to give me a call on[masked]

    Howdy folks! Sorry I had to leave early yesterday. If any of you have suggestions for next month's comic put them up here.

      Love Grendel. Really enjoyed Incognegro. Have and want to read Punk Rock Jesus and Underwater Welder. And as such I demand My Little Pony.

      I'm sure my husband would lend you his if you asked him nicely Derek. And I'm sure he knows some people who would be all too happy to talk about it with you.

    Just to warn everyone, I plan on discussing the royal baby at every opportunity tonight. I comfortable that it's on topic.

      Cervical not arrival. For some reason autocorrect doesn't like cervical

    A few personal issues to sort out, but I hope to be at this one. Looking forward to it!

    I've bought the book and it's sat on a shelf at home but I'm going through the hassle of packing and moving so I simply haven't had time to read it and, really, there's not much point me coming along and just going 'Um?' and 'Er?' for most of the night. ;-)
