Product Description

From the best-selling author of "Fun Home" "Time "magazine's No. 1 Book of the Year a brilliantly told graphic memoir of Alison Bechdel becoming the artist her mother wanted to be. Alison Bechdel's "Fun Home" was a pop culture and literary phenomenon. Now a second thrilling tale of filial sleuthery this time about her mother: voracious reader music lover passionate amateur actor. Also a woman unhappily married to a closeted gay man whose artistic aspirations simmered under the surface of Bechdel's childhood . . . and who stopped touching or kissing her daughter good night forever when she was seven. Poignantly hilariously Bechdel embarks on a quest for answers concerning the mother-daughter gulf. It's a richly layered search that leads readers from the fascinating life and work of the iconic twentieth-century psychoanalyst Donald Winnicott to one explosively illuminating Dr. Seuss illustration to Bechdel's own (serially monogamous) adult love life. And finally back to Mother--to a truce fragile and real-time that will move and astonish all adult children of gifted mothers.
