How Alison Bechdel’s Life Has Changed

imageI enjoyed this measured, even-handed article by Lauren Ober about Alison Bechdel and the changes in her life since the grand reception afforded her latest, the autobiographical story and potential comic of the year Fun Home. Ober describes the media coverage and Bechdel's reaction to seeing her intimate story discussed in magazines and newspapers across the country, but she also gets into some things I hadn't thought of: the reaction of Bechdel's family, and the impact having to deal with the success of this volume has had on her ability to manage her syndicated strip career simply from a time standpoint.
