BCB Fe by Bren Bataclan
*Includes signed bookplate; while supplies last*
When people ask Bren Bataclan to describe the tumultuous life with his mom Fe, they often ask, “How did you turn out so nice?” Bataclan’s memoir illustrates many volatile, often hilarious experiences with a tantrum-prone, narcissistic, hoarder mom. Yet Fe is fundamentally a loving and gay-supportive, though often challenging, Filipina mother. Bataclan shares a journey tracing his family’s immigration from the Philippines to the United States. You will remember his bittersweet story forever, as he moves from coping to thriving, with frustration, trauma, compassion, and eventual acceptance.
Praise for "Fe":
“This graphic memoir will make you laugh out loud, interrupting whoever is nearby so you can show them Bataclan’s story to make them laugh, too. Fe will also break your heart. Whether you are a person with a living mother still in the world, or like Bataclan, remembering your mother through stories, this graphic memoir will crack you open with its honesty, humor, generosity; all its names for love.”
