Bechdel’s new graphic memoir is about her lifelong obsession with exercise. She says she has a “predisposition of being extremely self-conscious and very caught up in my head” — and exercise helps. Bechdel’s previous graphic memoir, ‘Fun Home,’ was about coming out at age 19, and discovering her father had a secret gay life. It was adapted into a Tony Award-winning Broadway show.

Also, Justin Chang reviews ‘The Disciple,’ a film about a man from Mumbai who aspires to be a great classical musician.
