Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“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 Parkers.”

Synopsis:

At last, the comprehensive book of cartoons from beloved New Yorker cartoonist Roz Chast.

Finally the complete works of Roz Chast are available in one book. You will want to share this book with your friends and family, and my sister, the girl with the sensible shoes! Buy two copies-one for that special friend with the offbeat sense of humor, and one for yourself.
