Editorial Reviews

Michiko Kakutani
In Theories of Everything Ms. Chast has brought together nearly three decades of work — much of which has appeared in The New Yorker magazine — and the volume gives the reader a keen appreciation of her range as an artist: her capacity to limn everything from the existential and Dada-esque (an unholy cow who hates being a cow) to the mundane and middle-class (what happens at a party after you leave).
— The New York Times
