The memoir that inspired the hit Broadway musical!
Alison Bechdel (of the Bechdel Test) explores her complex relationship with her father - a funeral director and high school English teacher - who struggled his whole life with his sexual orientation. Flipping through time, the author shows her life as a child, tip toeing around cold parents, her college self, finding love and coming out to her parents as gay, and her adult self, trying to fit the pieces together after her father's sudden death. With honest words and stark illustration, this is a powerful memoir. ~ Reviewed by Leah Moore
