“Grief takes many forms, including the absence of grief.”
Alison Bechdel

“I suppose that a lifetime spent hiding one's erotic truth could have a cumulative renunciatory effect. Sexual shame is in itself a kind of death.”
Alison Bechdel, Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic

“It was not a triumphal return. Home, as I had known it, was gone.”
Alison Bechdel, Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic
