's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: favorites

Works doubly as one hugely terrific autobiography & one megaengaging graphic novel. In FUN HOME, there is a tremendous longing to merge both of these Arts. The intent is always to make print as compelling as the pictorials they are made to convey. Astute, cheeky & enthralling, it brings together disparate themes like 'Wind in the Willows" & "The Importance of Being Earnest" and "Catcher in the Rye", as well as A Chorus Line & Joyce's Ulysses: pretty much a choose-your-own-literature type adventure that possibly every single reader of this flawless book could relate to.

Ten dollars to you if the last page/frame of this doesn't make you B.O.L.*

PS: We are watching the musical this January! Oh blessed New Year!

Yeah. Goes to show just how much literature does for the formation of a thinking, feeling individual!
