And I'm a Chuck Palahniuk fan.
I cannot tell you the number of insights into my own childhood I've had in the last two days reading this book. They are the "Ouch! But at least I understand it better now" sorts of insights.
Of course, this means now I have to own everything Alison Bechdel has ever written/drawn. So now my amazon wishlist has like half a dozen lesbian-themed comic books on it.
I can't imagine what I will see next time Amazon tells me what my interests are.
Anyway, buy it. Read it.
