Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic

Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic - Alison Bechdel (Goodreads has no way of recording a second reading of a book. Fortunately, in this case my second reading was actually a different edition.)I reread Fun Home after liking Are You My Mother?: A Comic Drama so much I read it twice—and it's just not as amazing. Not as rich thematically, graphically, narratively—not as thoroughly thought out nor as painstakingly executed. It's still a great book, but in perspective it now looks like a dry run. Like Kagemusha before Ran, or even Ulysses before Finnegans Wake.
