Waiting for Are You My Mother?

Are You My Mother?

Over the weekend I read Alison Bechdel's new graphic memoir, Are You My Mother?: A Comic Drama.

This follow up to her 2006 memoir Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic, which focused on her father, concentrates both on her relationship with her mother and on her therapy process.
