“Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant?”

RozBook
Roz Chast, a comic book artist and illustrator, has hit a nerve for those of us with elderly parents. She writes in a graphic memoir her journey with her aging parents as they slipped into the last stages of life, ending of course in death. Their decline forces Chast to make some tough choices to help her often difficult parents through these final stages.

Her honest and funny memoir “Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant?” is a must read for all and another look at death that our society as a whole spends a lot of time avoiding.

Here is an interview with Chast on Rumpus.net by Suzanne Koven.
