A fresh and brilliantly told memoir from a cult favorite comic artist, marked by gothic twists, a family funeral home, sexual angst, and great books. This breakout book by Alison Bechdel is a darkly funny family tale, pitch-perfectly illustrated with Bechdel's sweetly gothic drawings. Like Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis, it's a story exhilaratingly suited to graphic memoir form. Meet Alison's father, a historic preservation expert and obsessive restorer of the family's Victorian home, a third-generation funeral home director, a high school English teacher, an icily distant parent, and a closeted homosexual who, as it turns out, is involved with his male students and a family babysitter. Through narrative that is alternately heartbreaking and fiercely funny, we are drawn into a daughter's complex yearning for her father. And yet, apart from assigned stints dusting caskets at the family-owned "fun home," as Alison and her brothers call it, the relationship achieves its most intimate expression through the shared code of books. When Alison comes out as homosexual herself in late adolescense, the denouement is swift, graphic -- and redemptive.

Charlotte Mary Yonge (1823-1901) was an English novelist whose books helped to spread the influence of the Oxford Movement within the Church of England. She was educated at home by her father, studying Latin, Greek, French, Euclid and algebra, and whilst his lessons could be harsh she had a lifelong devotion to him. Her close association with the Oxford Movement arose from the influence of John Keble, Vicar of Hursley from 1835, a near neighbour and one of the Movement's leaders, and her novels frequently reflect the values and concerns of Anglo-Catholicism. She began writing in 1848 and over her long life published around 160 works, chiefly novels, and was widely read and respected during the 19th century, her admirers including Lewis Carroll, George Elliot, Anthony Trollope and William Gladstone. This historical novel was first published in 1865 and is reprinted from the Macmillan edition of 1909.
