Bechdel, Alison. Are You My Mother? A Comic Drama. 2012. Boston: Mariner, 2013.
I will be teaching Bechdel’s book about her father, Fun Home, in one of my classes this fall, and as preparation for this I acquired Are You My Mother?, which is her book about her mother. If it is even half as good as Fun Home I will be pleased.
Gooden, Dwight, and Ellis Henican. Doc: A Memoir. Boston: New Harvest, 2013.
Somehow I missed this book when it was released last year. I recently found out about it, and, in light of my obsession with the ’86 Mets, ordered it immediately.
Schrag, Ariel. Adam. Boston: Mariner, 2014.
I read a review of this novel in BookForum that intrigued me, as it centers around LGBT issues. It has blurbs from Bechdel and Aimee Mann (!), thus I am very eager to read it.
All three books were acquired from amazon.com’s network of independent sellers.
