An autobiographical graphic novel and memoir.
"A splendid autobiography...generous and intelligent..has a depth of sweetness few can match." Entertainment Weekly.
"Heart stopping..a beautiful, assured piece of work" Salon.com
"The most ingeniously compact, hyper-verbose example of autobiography to have been produced. It is a pioneering work... The artist's work is so absorbing you feel you are living in her world."
Once I allowed myself to relax and absorb the graphic novel style of story telling in which the words and images perform multipart harmonies, I loved this book.
"Fun Home" is now a play off broadway in NYC.
