This is an easy book to read in two or three gulps, but it leaves you with a psychoanalytic reading list. I read Fun Home before I had any context of who Alison Bechdel was, and loved it for itself. In this novel, I had a hard time separating the voice of ALISON BECHDEL, creator of Dykes to Watch Out For and the Bechdel Test, from the story itself. As a result, I probably missed quite a bit of nuance.
Anyway: well-drawn, easy for a "new" fan of graphic novels to read, and intellectually nimble. It's also unapologetically self-focused; at its core, it's a novel about therapy, after all. Don't approach this book if you're not interested in the deeper meaning of everyday events.
