Coming Out

In part two of her autobiographical graphic novel series, Alison Bechdel focuses on her relationship with her mother, as well as her various romantic relationships. She weaves in information about some famous philosopher and psychologists as it relates to her own therapy.
Read part one of the series, "Fun Home," first to understand what is happening in this book. "Are you my mother?" is far more surreal and philosophical, whereas the first was much more of a memoir with a plot-line. The second book covers Bechdel's life roughly from her college years to 2012.
