It has been my first graphic novel and I look forward to reading other stories by Alison Bechdel because she is an author who tells the reader how life is really working the whole time. When Alison comes out as homosexual herself in late adolescence, the denouement is swift, graphic, and redemptive. However, formatting rules can vary widely between applications and fields of interest or study. Alison Bechdel. I ask myself: There are so many various ways to include in a story that you love someone.
If you take a look on pages 50 to 52 Bechtel added the first time the story of her fathers burrow.
However, on page 52 their faces change to being annoyed, their eyes from on corner to the other and Alison also thinks about this situation: At his point, the Bechdels are similar to my own family. In my childhood, my father was like Mr. Bechdel; he played with us, went swimming and organised trips for us.
The same things that Mr. Bechdel did with Alison and her siblings in her childhood.
By the time, my father became more strange tome. He was in hospital because of a psychological illness and after that he was a completely different person to me and my family. Suddenly, there is a new point of view on this person.
In these chapters, I feel like part of the novel and see the story from my perspective and everything seems so real to me. I want to talk about my introducing question again if I would write such a intimate story about my family.
After writing this response, I am very unsure about the answer. I agree with a lot of the story Alison Bechdel tells in her novels. The amount of stories look natural although Bechdel plays with sarcasm and apparent exaggerations.
Even if the other stories seem unnatural, by reading the whole novel you can notice that every story is a part of something bigger.
For example the brackets which are written in her diary, is a small detail that you can find in the plot again and again. I think that the brackets should be 3! In my opinion, the text is a wonderful opportunity to reflect your own life.
By telling the story as a first-person narrator, the reader feels engaged and can understand how it is to live in such a curious family, which could be seen as a ridiculous from some readers because they do not have these problems. It has been my first graphic novel and I look forward to reading other stories by Alison Bechdel because she is an author who tells the reader how life is really working the whole time.
The illustration changes reading in a new dimension and she achieves that every reader has exactly the same view on a particular character or place. Both this story and these pictures are beautiful attributes for the book to give a lesson and to entertain the reader on new creative way for novels. Bechdel, Alison. Fun Home — A Family Tragicomic.

Fun home: Alison Bechdel Publisher: English View all editions and formats Summary: This book takes its place alongside the unnerving, memorable, darkly funny family memoirs of Augusten Burroughs and Mary Karr. It's a father-daughter tale perfectly suited to the graphic memoir form. Meet Alison's father, a historic preservation expert and obsessive restorer of the family's Victorian house, 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 male students and a family babysitter.
