Cartoonist Roz Chast is a brilliant interpreter of the everyday. Her cartoons depict neuroses, hilarity, angst, and domesticity and are loaded with words, objects, and patterns. More than 1000 of them have been printed in The New Yorker since 1978. Her newest book for adults is Can’t We Talk about Something More Pleasant?, which chronicles her relationship with her aging parents as they shift from independence to dependence. Using handwritten text, drawings, photographs, and her keen eye for the foibles that make us human, Chast addresses the realities of what it is to get old in America today—and what it is to have aging parents—with tenderness and candor, and a good dose of her characteristic wit.
