Alison Bechdel's "Are You My Mother?" is here!

Six years later, Alison Bechdel's follow-up to her critically-acclaimed, bestselling "family tragicomic" Fun Home has arrived!

Are You My Mother? is another memoir by Bechdel, this time dealing with her relationship with her mother after the events depicted in Fun Home and her decision to publish her family story.

Listen, whenever we here at 211 Bernard are asked to recommend essential reading , Fun Home is one of two or three other graphic novels we offer up, and last Sunday's New York Times Review ("I haven’t encountered a book about being an artist, or about the punishing entanglements of mothers and daughters, as engaging, profound or original as this one in a long time.") had us even more excited. Another must-read!
