Fun Home by Alison Bechdel

This book was a re-read for book group. You can see my initial review here.

It was very cool to look at this book with a group. People pointed out a lot of things that I hadn't noticed, such as some of the ways that Bechdel uses the graphic format. We talked about the picture epigraphs, the chapter titles, the book's cover, the literary references. We talked about the way that Bechdel makes her own unique and specific experiences feel universal. We all liked the book.

And admittedly, I found it somewhat gratifying that no one in the group liked the other book we were discussing, Fumbling Towards Divinity.
