Fun Home was first published back in 2006. It took me a decade to get around to reading it because, on a personal level, I had come to resent its existence. The reason for that was that I absolutely loved Bechdel's decades-long comic strip, the incomparable Dykes To Watch Out For, and so when she stopped doing the strip (technically "on hiatus") to work on graphic novels, I blamed Fun Home. Irrationally, true, but I feel I needed to explain why I put off reading it for so long, in spite of all the praise it was getting. Well, I finally did read it and it's amazing.
To be accurate, Fun Home falls into the category of graphic memoir rather than graphic novel as it's an account of Bechdel's early life, her somewhat dysfunctional family, and above all, the highly complex relationship she had with her father. It's told in a non-linear fashion with Bechdel providing an on-going narration as she takes us through different scenes of her life, sometimes moving forward only to jump back again later to revisit a scene shown earlier but from a different angle or with a new understanding. It's like listening to someone as they paint a highly complex picture, working first on one part of the canvas, then another, seemingly not in any order. But the picture grows as we watch and listen, and you come to realize that it had to be done this way to truly understand the experience and her own growing understanding of her early life.
There are number of poignant moments in Fun Home which Bechdel eloquently captures with her art and her words. One in particular stays with me. When she was around four or five years old, her father took her on a business trip to Philadelphia where they stopped to eat at a luncheonette. While they were there, a female truck driver made a delivery. "I didn't know there were women who wore men's clothes and had men's haircuts. But like a traveler in a foreign country who runs into someone from home - someone they've never spoken to, but know by sight - I recognized her with a surge of joy. Dad recognized her too. 'Is _that_ what you want to look like?' he asked. What else could I say? 'No.' But the vision of the truck-driving BD sustained me through the years..."
Highly, highly recommended for anyone who enjoys graphic novels (or comic strips) with engaging characters, complex story-lines and the ability to engage with the reader on a deeply intimate level. And for anyone who wants to see a detailed portrait of a daughter's relationship with dysfunctional parents and how she eventually comes to terms with them, but most especially with her deeply flawed father.
I'm a straight woman, but a bit of a tomboy. Move always worn guy clothes and my parents always tell the story of when I sprinted out on Christmas morning at age 4 to attack my older brother's gifts under the tree, ignoring all the frilly girl toys and dolls set out for me. He had matchbox cars, etc set out. I played with those from a young age. I wore my dad's shirts and shoes. I don't recall ever playing with make up. I'd play flag football with neighborhood kids. I'd climb trees, etc. I was once flung off a neighbor's horse into a sticker bush while riding without tackle. I was a mess. Before swim team practice I would get there early and get all the frogs and snakes out of the pool. (I grew up in GA.). Thankfully, mom moved me to CA for high school and I had a place where minds were more open to different ideas. I identify with Alison's wanting to dress in guy clothes and have short hair. That's me all the way. Even straight people can see themselves in this book.
