Stuck in Vermont: Alison Bechdel Shares 'The Secret to Superhuman Strength'

Episode 638

By

Vermont cartoonist Alison Bechdel’s new graphic novel The Secret to Superhuman Strength documents her lifelong obsession with fitness during the last six decades. The former cartoonist laureate of Vermont and a MacArthur fellow, Alison is also known for her comic strip “Dykes to Watch Out For” and her graphic novels Are You My Mother? and Fun Home. The latter became a Tony-award winning Broadway musical and will soon be adapted into a film.

Eva visited Alison at her home near Bolton to hear about her new book and to see some of her cartoon panels come to life.
