Adult Summer Reading Book Review: Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant by Roz Chast

617lsz642xl-_sx258_bo1204203200_5 stars (loved it!). This book spoke to me in many ways. My parents are getting old and much of the trials she has gone through with hers folks aging smacks of my current reality. She puts a funny, but honest spin on a very hard subject, arguably the hardest, with her fantastically expressive drawings and her uncannily familiar-sounding observations. [I have always LOVED Roz Chast’s work in the New Yorker and have felt a kinship with her since I too am an illustrator and we attended the same school, both lived and worked in the city, etc. but I don’t know if I would have read this book if it hadn’t been on the Bingo list as a graphic novel-so thanks!] – 2016 Adult Summer Reading Participant
