Astonishing to think back at how great this was. A daily comic strip that was sort of the Jon Stewart show of its day, in an allegorical format. My friends and I really loved it in high school and college in the mid-80s. "Bloom County" was an easy si...more

It took a while for me to come back and finish this book because it sort of tested the outer limits of my (merely passing, I admit) interest in record collectors and 78 rpm blues recordings, but I knew it would. I also already knew the tropes and ste...more

I don't know why I put off reading this for seven or eight years (maybe I was inured to her work by all those years of "Dykes to Watch Out For" in the local gay papers and figured I was up to speed), but "Fun Home" really is as marvelous and moving a...more

All style, no substance. Nihilism and narcissism with a nice electronic beat. Irresistible reading for college-sophomore me in the fall of 1987.

Quite the conversation-starter in 1987, when I was a sophomore in college. Often a conversation-ender, too.
