    1st printing.

    Written by Janine Utell. Art and cover by Alison Bechdel.

    Alison Bechdel is both a driver and beneficiary of the welcoming of comics into the mainstream.

    Indeed, the seemingly simple binary of outside/inside seems perpetually troubled throughout the career of this important comics artist, known for Fun Home, Are You My Mother?, and Dykes to Watch Out For. This volume extends the body of scholarship on her work from a range of interdisciplinary perspectives.

    In a definitive collection of original essays, scholars cover the span of Bechdel's career, providing insights on major themes in Bechdel's work, such as gender performativity, masculinity, lesbian politics and representation, trauma, life writing, and queer theory.

    Softcover, 6-in. x 9-in., 272 pages, B&W.

    Cover price $30.00.
