really liked it

Read in August, 2012

It's interesting that I found this so compelling despite disagreeing completely with the psychological theories Bechdel relies so heavily on to tell this story. Bechdel tells a very personal story in a way that enables the reader to reflect on themselves along with her. It's intimate and well-written (and woven)... you can almost hear her reading it to you. I think this one will stick with me the way her other work has.
