Alison Bechdel's "Fun Home," the Memoir that Became a Tony-Winning Musical

Alison Bechdel's "Fun Home," the Memoir that Became a Tony-Winning Musical

Nearly a decade ago Alison Bechdel wrote "Fun Home," a graphic memoir that was later turned into a Tony-award winning musical. The memoir contrasts Bechdel's life as a "professional lesbian" with that of her father's, which was spent in the closet. We talk to Bechdel about her memoir, her comic strip "Dykes to Watch Out For," and coming to terms with her father's apparent suicide.
