(W/A/CA) Alison Bechdel. Meet Alison's father* a historic preservation expert and obsessive restorer of the family's Victorian home* 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 his male students and a family babysitter. Through narrative that is alternately heartbreaking and fiercely funny* we are drawn into a daughter's complex yearning for her father. And yet* apart from assigned stints dusting caskets at the family-owned "fun home*" as Alison and her brothers call it* the relationship achieves its most intimate expression through the shared code of books. When Alison comes out as homosexual herself in late adolescense* the denouement is swift* graphic* and redemptive.
