Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic
2 journalers for this copy...
So I bought this copy to re-read before going to see the show in NYC. I found the performance quite enjoyable (although there was a stand-in for Young Alison that day), but it still seems like an unusual choice for conversion to the stage, especially as a musical. On the other hand, the kids' Fun Home commercial was hilarious, and all the actors were excellent. Journal photo shows part of the set before the performance began, including some of the musicians in the background: that's adult Alison's work desk across the way.
Here's another copy on my shelf - it went AWOL, so hopefully this one will have a better fate.
And plug my story BROOKLYN BLACKIE AND THE UNAPPETIZING MENU which features a bisexual wolf set in a 40's era setting of an alternate Earth.

What's so odd about this is how uplifting this book actually feels. The literary pretensions of its literary pretentiousness of its literal and figurative meanings is self-consciously amusing. I never enjoyed learning about Ulysses more than I did between the covers of this book.
And thinking that there might be a song or songs about James Joyce out there leaves me in a queer state of bewilderment.
