One of the most popular cartoonists at work today, Roz Chast has a distinctive style and a keen but gentle eye for the foibles that make us human. Whether pointing out our boring obsessions or our devouring insecurities, Chast finds a balance between humor and truth. Her new memoir, Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant? (Bloomsbury), is about the reality of getting old in America and the challenges adults face as their parents age. Using cartoons, text and photographs, Chast brings tenderness, candor and, of course, wit to a difficult topic.
