Are You My Mother? A Comic Drama

Are You My Mother?: A Comic Drama

I loved Alison Bechdel’s Fun Home, a memoir that contrasted her father’s life as a closeted homosexual with her own coming of age and coming out as a lesbian in college. This, her follow-up memoir, is the story of her often fraught relationship with her mother. As in Fun Home, recollections are interspersed with snippets of relevant literature and excerpts from her hours with her psychotherapist, animated by her quirky cartoon illustrations. This is the perfect Mother’s Day gift for the hip mom who has already read Nancy Friday’s My Mother, My Self.
