    Reading Fun Home A Family Tragicomic put me in the same irritated and impatient mood experienced when reading Toni Morrison s The Song of Solomon in high school both books feel like major wank offs to the writers cumulative reading endeavors To put it in less crude terms, both books overflow with self conscious references to classic literature both use The Odyssey in a major way However, this

    Having never felt much inclination toward the graphic novel genre, I accepted a copy of Fun Home by Alison Bechdel on loan only because a coworker promised that I could finish it in one hour and forty minutes almost precisely the amount of time it would take to travel from the office to my home in Connecticut, where I had plans to spend the weekend.One hour and fifty five minutes later, when my mom pul

    I ve known about Bechdel for some time, but I ve never gotten around to reading any of her work Odds are, you know about her too, even if you re not aware of it She s the one that invented the appropriately named Bechdel Test for movies.If you don t know about the test, it bears talking about It s almost like a checklist 1 Does the movie have two female characters in it 2 Do the two female characters have at le

    Works doubly as one hugely terrific autobiography a megaengaging graphic novel In FUN HOME, there is a tremendous longing to merge both of these Arts The intent is always to make print as compelling as the pictorials they are made to convey Astute, cheeky enthralling, it brings together disparate themes like Wind in the Willows The Importance of Being Earnest and Catcher in the Rye , as well as A Chorus Line Joyce s Uly

    3.5 5 Fun Home s biggest flaw is its self conscious, droll narrative voice that diminishes its raw earnestness at times Alison Bechdel imposes her obsessive compulsive desire for extracting meaning from even the most commonplace of occurrences on to a narrative of coming to terms with personal loss And this whole exercize of drawing parallels between fictional and real life tragedies and pivotal emotional beats becomes too trite all too soon Maybe she sho
