Alison Bechdel's Fun Home was a literary phenomenon: 'an extraordinarily intimate account of family secrets that manages to be shocking, unsettling and life-affirming at the same time', as Sarah Walters wrote in the Guardian. The Times said it was 'incontestibly the graphic book of the year', while the Observer recently chose it as one of the ten best graphic novels ever published. While Fun Home explored Bechdel's relationship with her father, a closeted homsexual, this new memoir is about her mother - a voracious reader, a music lover, a passionate amateur actor. Also a woman, unhappily married to a gay man, whose artistic aspirations simmered under the surface of Bechdel's childhood... and who stopped touching or kissing her daughter goodnight, for ever, when she was seven. Poignantly, hilariously, Bechdel embarks on a quest for answers concerning the mother-daughter gulf. It's a richly layered search that leads readers from the fascinating life and work of psychoanalyst Donald Winnicott to one explosively illuminating Dr Seuss illustration, to Bechdel's own (serially monogamous) love life. And, finally, back to Mother - to a truce, fragile and real-time, that will move and astonish all adult children of gifted mothers.

A compelling story of nonlinear relationships, well-intentioned secrets, and difficult questions about what we owe our families "I don't even know what to say. I got an email last night saying that Mom isn't my mother and my real mother needs a kidney transplant and that's the only reason they're telling me and this person is my sister?" Sol Garnett, a woman in her late thirties, initially brushes off the stranger's unbelievable email. Her mom isn't her biological mother? She's the middle child of three siblings, so how is that even possible? But the more she thinks about it, she realizes that all of her life, people have been questioning her identity. Her Spanish name and dark coloring don't necessarily seem to fit her white family. And now that the seed of doubt has been planted, Sol has to find out the truth. And she has to find out soon if what the stranger says is right. Are You My Mother? tackles timely issues in this era of increasing DNA testing, a culture of "canceling" people, and a bloated health care system, including navigating identity questions, salvaging muddled relationships, and making costly sacrifices to pay for medical expenses. Join Sol on her journey full of twists and turns as she discovers the real story about her birth and what family actually means.

We've all been there. You call an Uber. The app says it has arrived, but . . . where is it? Where is your Uber? Are You My Uber? is a 21st Century parody of the 1960 P.D. Eastman children's book Are You My Mother? A man steps off the midnight bus at Port Authority. His name? Unknown. His goal? To find his Uber, an elusive Ford Taurus. Lost and alone in a new city, he steels himself and begins by passing right by the very object of his search. Hilarity ensues: the man proceeds to knock at the doors of an off-duty cab, a helicopter, a halal cart, and other vehicles increasing in their absurdity, willing to try anything to find his Uber. Paired with illustrations by Hilary Fitzgerald Campbell, co-illustrator of Feminist Fight Club, Sarah Dooley's hilarious imagined story is as ridiculous as it is relatable.
