Into the Sea

I finished Alison Bechdel's beautiful and moving and perfect graphic novel slash memoir Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic on the train ride to work this morning and although I didn't find it as inspirational as Gaiman or as quotable as Tropper the images and the story were both so engrossing and haunting and unforgettable that dammit I just couldn't put it down. Fun Home is a true story and it's mostly about death and family and sexuality and it's been adapted into a stage musical that won the Tony Award for Best Musical recently and here's my favorite song from that.
