Are You My Mother?
Alison Bechdel’s Fun Home was a literary phenomenon. While Fun Home explored Bechdel’s relationship with her father, a closeted homosexual, this memoir is about her mother – a voracious reader, a music lover, a passionate amateur actor. Also a woman, unhappily married to a gay man, whose artistic aspirations simmered under the surface of Bechdel’s childhood… and who stopped touching or kissing her daughter goodnight, for ever, when she was seven.
Poignantly, hilariously, Bechdel embarks on a quest for answers concerning the mother-daughter gulf.
