Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant?

Book: Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant?

Author: Roz Chast

Reviewer: Marian Fragola, Program Planning & Outreach, NCSU Libraries

Roz Chast, a cartoonist at The New Yorker, has written and drawn a remarkable memoir about her relationship with her aging parents. At once hilariously funny and heartrendingly sad, this book will resonate with anyone who has experienced or thought about end-of-life issues. The book was a finalist for the National Book Award, the first comic book (or graphic novel, call it what you like), ever to be a finalist in the nonfiction category.
