A rich collection of three decades of Roz Chast's most beloved cartoons.
"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."
About the Author
Roz Chast was born in Brooklyn and now lives in Connecticut. Her cartoons have appeared in countless magazines, and she is the author of many books, including The Party, After You Left.
She attended Rhode Island School of Design, majoring in Painting because it seemed more artistic. However, soon after graduating, she reverted to type and began drawing cartoons once again.
