Fun home

2 stars
This is our June book club book. My thoughts about the book? Meh. It was interesting insomuch as the story was told as a graphic novel. Other than that, I didn’t really find anything any more compelling than any other books about dysfunctional families. Alison is gay. When she tells her family, she discovers that her father is also gay but was never allowed to live freely as a gay man. In the story the author reflects on certain events in the past and tries to decipher the meaning. This book became a big deal because it was banned by some public libraries and other outlets. As autobiographies go, I wasn’t too impressed and didn’t find the story very interesting. There are much better books on the subject than this one.
