Sinful Reader :: Bechdel Comes Clean

This special comic of Dykes to Watch Out For by Alison Bechdel appeared in the 100th issue of Entertainment Weekly, where her memoir Fun Home was listed as number 68 of “new classic” books from the past 25 years. The strip begins:

Authors, bless me for I have sinned.

It’s been three months since my last novel. And I didn’t even finish that one.

For my penance I swear I’ll finally read something by Joyce Carol Oates and John Updike…

For fans who weren’t able to find a copy of the magazine, Bechdel received permission to reprint the strip on her site. Read it in full here. No doubt some of you will identify with the situation – I know I did!
