This fantastic graphic novel, from the author who created the Bechdel Test, is a fantastic looks at someone's childhood through diary entries and literary nods. The book beautifully plays out Bechdel's relationship with her father, his eventual death and her coming out to her family.
LAMF Revisited, Jungle, 1984"A love song written by the late, great Johnny Thunders. As bruised, broken and defiantly beautiful as any teenage opera by the Shangri-Las, the Shirelles or the Ronettes. 'I can count on diamonds/Rubies as well/Big deal baby/ I still feel like hell/It's not enough.' It gets me every time, sad but tough. Just like Johnny."Bobby Gillespie, Primal Scream's main man
**Beat Of The Brass, A&M, 1968**"I first heard this song when Noel Gallagher sang it with Burt Bacharach at the Royal Festival Hall about ten years ago. This is the definitive recording of it. The song is from a man's point of view, but is really beautiful and tender. Sometimes it's stronger to be vulnerable, especially in the name of love. The line, 'My hands are shaking/Don't let my heart keep breaking' makes me weep."David Walliams, comedy institution
