More Fun Home press

May 24th, 2006 | Uncategorized

I’m trying to make a separate page to list links to reviews and interviews, but I haven’t figured out how to do it yet. In the meantime, the Star-Tribune in Minneapolis ran a nice joint review of Fun Home and artbabe Jessica Abel’s graphic novel La Perdida.

My friend, writer Susan Stinson, posted a lovely review of Fun Home in her LiveJournal. Yeah, okay, she’s my friend, but still.

And get this. Time Magazine included Fun Home in a list of “5 Memoirs That Are Worth Your Time,” which also included books by Julia Child, Roger Angell, Edmund White, and Howell Raines. Dang! I don’t know how long this link will last…and you have to click through to page two to see my book.

    That is wonderful but not surprising, o alison bechdel. i must admit i snagged a Fun Home review copy a few months back (one perk of my gig) and it is smart, deeply felt, and easy-peezy on the eyes. I read it twice. So far.

    I enjoyed the review, but really loved the book.
    I scanned the other items on the web page with your review.
