Since first accepting Roz Chast’s cartoons in 1978, The New Yorker has published more than 800 pieces of her work. Now a staff cartoonist with the venerable magazine, Chast has also seen her work regularly printed by Scientific American and Harvard Business Review. She has written or illustrated more than a dozen books, including several collected volumes of her published cartoons, which have been hailed as compendiums of “worry, doom, and gloom that are funny, fresh, and relatable” (Reader’s Digest). In her first memoir, Chast uses cartoons, family photos, and narrative to tell the difficult but comic story of her aging parents.
