This is the tenth collection of work from Bechdel's signature comic strip, Dykes to Watch Out For. In this volume, Mo, everybody's favorite curmudgeon, blithely rants about Dr. Laura, Donald Rumsfeld, gay Enron execs, and the pernicious effects of Frogger, while her cozy counterculture community is quickly shifting beneath her feet. Her job is in jeopardy as the customer base of Madwimmin Books defects to the chains. Her ex, Clarice, is displaying symptoms of soccer mom-itis. Her best friend, Lois, has announced her new name is Louis. And her old pal Sparrow considers whether having a baby with her boyfriend will compromise her identity as a radical lesbian feminist. Meanwhile, Toni doesn't know what to do when Clarice's George W. Bush-induced depression lasts long after the inauguration, and in the wake of 9/11, her friends square off on questions of idealism, violence, compassion, patriotism, and dissent

This is the ninth collection of work from Bechdel's signature comic strip, Dykes To Watch Out For. In this volume, Mo's having a touch of performativity anxiety--a post-feminist, post-gay kind of moment--as she considers a panoply of possible gender permutations. Angst with her as she inquires: is gender essential? If she were a transsexual woman, a bisexual man, or a straight woman with a penchant for lesbians, would Mo still be a dyke to watch out for?

Irksomely earnest Mo makes her debut in this, the second collection of work from Bechdel's signature comic strip. Mo's at loose ends--unemployed, unintentionally celibate and unable to come to grips with a regrettable haircut. What could the unflappable Harriet possibly see in her? Perhaps the answer lies in the "mildly erotic" account of their first night together

Fun home : eine Familie von Gezeichneten by Alison Bechdel( Book )

4 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in German and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Buch erzählt von einer jungen Frau, die einem Familiengeheimnis auf die Spur kommt. Sensationell ist die Form, in der die Geschichte erzählt wird: In Worten und Bildern, die sich zu einem Meisterwerk der Comic-Kunst zusammenfügen. Alison Bechdel, Autorin und Erzählerin von >>Fun Home<<, verstand in ihrer Jugend nie, warum ihr Vater, Bestattungsunternehmer und Englischlehrer an der örtlichen High School, offenbar seine Bücher mehr liebte als seine Familie. Sie leben in einem Haus aus dem Jahr 1867, stilvoll und detailversessen restauriert vom Vater. Als Alison 19 Jahre alt ist, kommt ihr Vater ums Leben. Selbstmord oder Unfall? Das wird sich nicht mehr klären lassen. Was aber ans Licht kommt, ist ein Geheimnis, das Vater und Tochter teilen: Beide sind sie homosexuell. Mit diesem Wissen nähert sich Alison in >>Fun Home<< ihrem Vater, den sie schon vor seinem Tod vermisste wie ein Amputierter sein fehlendes Glied

Huan le zhi jia : yi chang jia ting bei xi ju by Alison Bechdel( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in Chinese and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book takes its place alongside the unnerving, memorable, darkly funny family memoirs of Augusten Burroughs and Mary Karr. It's a father-daughter tale perfectly suited to the graphic memoir form. Meet Alison's father, a historic preservation expert and obsessive restorer of the family's Victorian house, a third-generation funeral home director, a high school English teacher, an icily distant parent, and a closeted homosexual who, as it turns out, is involved with male students and a family babysitter. Through narrative that is alternately heartbreaking and fiercely funny, we are drawn into a daughter's complex yearning for her father. And yet, apart from assigned stints dusting caskets at the family-owned 'fun home, ' as Alison and her brothers call it, the relationship achieves its most intimate expression through the shared code of books. When Alison comes out as homosexual herself in late adolescence, the denouement is swift, graphic, and redemptive.--From publisher description
