ALISON BECHDEL:
FAMILY SECRETS


Alison Bechdel, author of the popular syndicated strip Dykes To Watch Out For, unveils her tragicomic family background in Fun Home, short for Funeral Home, her father’s business. Her mesmerising graphic novel debut weaves together the troubled life and possible suicide of her remote, closeted dad with her own coming-out and asks whether their shared secrets and love of literature can close the distance between them. Alison Bechdel will be in conversation with comedienne and jazz singer Lea Delaria and will also read from Fun Home to a laptop slideshow.

Where: Brandon Room, ICA, The Mall, London
When: Monday, October 23, 2006 - 6.45pm
