Description

Are You My Mother? From the best-selling author of Fun Home, Time magazine’s No. 1 Book of the Year, a brilliantly told graphic memoir of Alison Bechdel becoming the artist her mother wanted to be.

Alison Bechdel’s Fun Home was a pop culture and literary phenomenon. Now, a second thrilling tale of filial sleuthery, this time about her mother: voracious reader, music lover, passionate amateur actor. Also a woman, unhappily married to a closeted gay man, whose artistic aspirations simmered under the surface of Bechdel's childhood . . . and who stopped touching or kissing her daughter good night, forever, when she was seven. Poignantly, hilariously, Bechdel embarks on a quest for answers concerning the mother-daughter gulf. It's a richly layered search that leads readers from the fascinating life and work of the iconic twentieth-century psychoanalyst Donald Winnicott, to one explosively illuminating Dr. Seuss illustration, to Bechdel’s own (serially monogamous) adult love life. And, finally, back to Mother—to a truce, fragile and real-time, that will move and astonish all adult children of gifted mothers., are you my mother book, are you my mother pdf, are you my mother dr seuss, are you my mother activities, are you my mother alison bechdel, are you my mother summary, are you my mother read aloud, are you my mother reading level, are you my mother video, are you my mother snort

    I purchased it after reading the NY Times book review, then went back and bought Fun Home. Midway through I also picked up some Alice Miller books. Incredible honesty and humility. An inspiring work. So glad I discovered her.

    Well, I just finished it and I still think this is her best book so far. I've loved everything else Ms. Bechdel has written since the '80's, too. I'm just so impressed with how much she's grown, all the dreams, dream analysis and time shifts(flash-backs). Wonderful portrait of a mother. Even Lacan gets a mention. It works as psychology, too!
