Overview

"Where would we be without Roz Chast? Chast's magnificent career-spanning collection highlights her position as master of the deep interior, of the obsessions, the baseless fears and the weird proverbs to which we cling in our desperation not to leave the house."— Susan Salter Reynolds, Los Angeles Times

This wonderfully comprehensive collection spanning nearly three decades and arranged chronologically—and drawn from the pages of magazines including Scientific American and Redbook as well as The New Yorker—brings together, for the first time, the very best of Roz Chast, whom O Magazine called "the wryest pen since Dorothy Parker's."

I will only say that this book suffered considerable water damage as I was reading it. I had never realized that tear ducts can do almost as much damage as a fire hose. My wife kept looking over at me in bewilderment. She gave up on me after I fell out of my chair the fourth time and lay quietly in a pool of water. Quite embarrassing. You might want to read it in snorkeling gear. Though on second thought that might not work too well.

Roz Chast captured my attention many years ago and I watch The New Yorker for her cartoons. Some of the pages here are dated but not in a negative way; they take me back to the part of my life that deserves reflection and frequently a belly laugh! I don't know when she met my family but the humor about hair and hairdressers confirms it. Ditto for reliving the childhoods of my two daughters. She is honest and funny as shown in her newest book "Let's Talk About Something Pleasant" which I have given to several friends including my lawyer.
