The Essential Dykes To Watch Out For (Paperback)
The Essential DTWOF is a compilation of Bechdel's groundbreaking comic strip from 1983-2008. There are myriad ways to get lost in Dykes to Watch Out For. Enjoy it with cup of tea on a chilly afternoon when you need to spend some time with good friends on a page. Leave it on the nightstand for a quick read before bed when you want to visit with Mo and Jezanna at Madwimmin Bookstore. There are myriad reasons to to love this book, too. Bechdel's expressive illustration, the funny, serious, and salient storylines. But mostly, for me, what makes DTWOF so special is the wonderfully real characters in their everyday relationships and how they interact with the world around them. -Katie, Essex— From The Essential Dykes to Watch Out For by Alison Bechdel
ALISON BECHDEL’s cult following for her early comic strip Dykes to Watch Out For expanded wildly for her family memoirs, the New York Times bestselling and Time magazine #1 Book of the Year graphic memoir Fun Home, adapted into a Tony Award-winning musical, and Are You My Mother?
