Product description

Review

"It is a pioneering work, pushing two genres (comics and memoir) in multiple new directions, with panels that combine the detail and technical proficiency of R. Crumb with a seriousness, emotional complexity and innovation completely its own... A comic book for lovers of words! Bechdel's rich language and precise images combine to create a lush piece of work - a memoir where concision and detail are melded for maximum, obsessive density" (New York Times)

"Bechdel's memoir offers a graphic narrative of uncommon richness, depth, literary resonance and psychological complexity . . . shares [much] in spirit with the work of Mary Karr, Tobias Wolff, and other contemporary memoirists of considerable literary accomplishement" (Kirkus Reviews)

"The recursively told story, which revisits the sites of tragic desperation again and again, hits notes that resemble Jeanette Winterson at her best... She's made a story that's quiet, dignified and not easy to put down" (Publishers Weekly)

"One of the very best graphic novels ever" (Booklist)

"A brilliant, bleakly hilarious memoir in comic-book form" (Time)

Book Description

The bestselling memoir from a cult favourite comic artist, marked by gothic twists, a family funeral home, sexual angst, and great books.

Named a Best Book of the Year by Time, Entertainment Weekly, the New York Times, and People.
