    Initially, what impressed me the most about this story is the author's complete openness about not only her life but her mother's and late father's lives. It can't be easy to expose oneself to public scrutiny, but exposing someone else - especially when the revelations are in part scandalous in nature - takes real courage and conviction. But ultimately, it's the sad story of Bruce Bechdel, living a life he felt he didn't choose but ultimately had to follow, that's the most compelling aspect of the book. At times, he's something of a villain, and at others, he's a victim of the repressed social order of his time. He's both a puzzling oddity and impressive intellect, something of a Renaissance man lost in the mirage of the American Dream. Read Full Review
