New book alert: Roz Chast's new book explores a heavy topic with a light (and artistic) hand.

Fans of The New Yorker are probably familiar with the work of Roz Chast, whose cartoons have appeared in the publication since 1978. She has such a distinct aesthetic style, and in my mind, her work is one of the (wonderful) hallmarks of the weekly magazine. 330 more words

Dread, Guilt and Weird

Who doesn’t recognise the work of Roz Chast? Her idiosyncratic cartoons, tinged with a mixture of regret, awkwardness and grumpy, world-weary cynicism, have been part and parcel of the New Yorker’s personality for as long as I can remember. 310 more words

In Janet Yano's blog, Warren's Daughter, she made a recent post: Read This Book If You Have Older Parents Janet said: “Well, I’ve discovered the bible for the other big life stage. The one nobody wants to talk about, or think about, much less spend precious free time reading about. Yep, that’s old age and all the scary things that come with it.” This is so very, very true! I, too, have written a book, What to Do about Mama? wtdam_cabout my own caregiving experience, along with those of 34 other caregivers. My intention was to give potential caregivers a “heads-up” about what to expect. I’m seeing a lot of these attitudes about the whole topic: Potential caregivers: I don’t need to read it yet. Current caregivers: I’m too busy to read it now. Past caregivers: I want to put it all behind me. Roz Chast’s book, Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant? something the public will look forward to reading.
