Are You My Mother? – Alison Bechdel

Alison Bechdel continues to impress with her “comic dramas” which are both intimate and clinically analytical. In Are You My Mother? she looks at her relationship with her mother in attempts to come to some sort of conclusion, and find peace with herself. Through her relationships with her various psychologists, girlfriends, and with herself, Alison gradually reaches a conclusion of sorts, perhaps not one that she herself wanted, but one which fits the story of their relationship.
