What does it mean to be female? Male? Gay? Straight? All of the usual categories are tossed out the window in this ninth binary-busting cartoon collection from Alison Bechdel. Lois has become a drag king. Sparrow identifies as a bi-dyke. Stuart says he's a butch lesbian. As dualistic thinking gives way to a more nuanced continuum, the sanctity of couplehood itself comes into question. Will Clarice and Toni become suburban swingers? Is Sydney's interest in polyamory purely professional? We know we can count on one old-fashioned character to take the Mo out of PoMo and put it back in Mo-nogamous. Or can we?
