Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic by Alison Bechdel

Whether you're an avid reader of graphic novels or are looking for a good one as your foray into this genre, Alison Bechdel's Fun Home is for you! Her book has all the essential elements of an exemplary graphic novel: good writing, captivating artwork, and a highly engaging storyline. The author's depiction of her family life, especially the relationship she shared with her dad, is candid, touching, and outright hysterical. This is truly one of my favorite graphic novels of all time.
