The New Yorker has an excerpt of a new autobiographical graphic memoir by illustrator/cartoonist Roz Chast in the March 10, 2014 edition. It’s about her experience with aging parents, something Anne and I are going through right now. It’s full of humor and insight and compassion and its brilliant.

Here’s the book at Amazon (I pre-ordered it, it’s coming out in May): Can’t We Talk about Something More Pleasant?: A Memoir.
This story is not unlike pieces of the award-winning graphic novel Maus: A Survivor’s Tale by Art Spiegelman which is a classic.
