Kate Says: "Reading Is Fun!"

Like most of you I'm an avid reader. I'm hoping to re-connect with old friends, make new friends, and of course spread the love of reading and writing around to everyone!

Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic

Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic - Alison Bechdel A great book about the ties the bind and sometimes gag you as you grow up and the feelings that surround the relationships you cannot choose.

Well written, full of dark humor, great insights and amazing literary allusions, I now understand why this book was Time Magazine's #1 Book of the Year.

This is one that I'll read over and over again as I try to make sense of my own tragicomic relationship with my parents.

Thank you Alison for writing such an brutally honest and nobel book. I can only hope my own torrid memoirs turn out to be as eloquent as yours.
