The Art of Remembering in Alison Bechdel’s Fun Home by Simona Hevešiová, […] draws attention to the relatively new medium of graphic novels which have gained popularity ever since the publication of Art Spiegelman’s Maus. As manifested by Hevešiová’s paper, the dynamic combination of pictures and words provide great opportunities for storytelling, whether fictional or real. Bechdel’s memoir draws on the strength of the format and discusses her own troubled past in order to come to terms with her present. The very structure of the graphic narrative enables the author to manipulate her story to such an extent that it puts the reader right in the centre of action. Moreover, the circular, fragmented nature of her narrative imitates the very process of remembering which stands at the very core of her book.
