“Like many gay people of my generation, I would not behave like a teenager until I was in my twenties.”
In this graphic novel, Alison Bechdel explores the reason she has spent so much of her life exercising.
She has tried just about everything in the realm of exercise and with humor she tells us about her interest in spin classes, karate, Nordic skiing, road cycling, and running. The real subject Alison is examining is self-improvement.
Alison’s thoughts about morality, life and transcendence, plus her continuous need to try the latest exercise class will keep you laughing.
The drawings are Alison’s and her partner colored them. Although the subject matter seems heavy, her book feels light.
