The realization came in my teens: My parents are people, too. While I still struggle to discover and relate to “Mom” and “Dad,” Alison Bechdel has used memories, journals, and therapy sessions, not only exploring their relationships to her, but searching out their independent identities. What she did in the award-winning Fun Home about her late father, she now bravely attempts with her still-living mother. Whatever your parental relationships, Are You My Mother? will ring true.

Six months after Hurricane Katrina, detective Claire deWitt arrives in New Orleans to investigate the disappearance of a well-known prosecutor. DeWitt is not your usual detective—her methods include divination, dreams, and omens, as well as a battered copy of Détection by French detective Jacques Silette, and to say she’s an unreliable narrator is to put it lightly. But the best part of this novel is New Orleans itself, reeling and wounded from Katrina and its aftermath. Dark, richly atmospheric, and highly recommended.
