Summary
Alison's father is a historic preservation expert , a third-generation funeral home director, a high school English teacher, an icily distant parent, and a closeted homosexual.The narrative is alternately heartbreaking and fiercely funny. Apart from times dusting caskets at the family-owned "fun home", the father-daughter relationship achieves its most intimate expression through the shared code of books. Alison comes out as homosexual herself in late adolescence
