Can't We Talk About Something More Pleasant? Comic Book


(Price incl. VAT plus shipping costs)

Poignant, yet strangely comforting: an account on ageing parents.

New Yorker cartoonist Roz Chast brings her signature wit to the topic of ageing parents. Spanning the last several years of their lives and told through four-colour cartoons, family photos, and documents, and a narrative as rife with laughs as it is with tears, the covered themes are universal: adult children accepting a parental role; ageing and unstable parents leaving a family home for an institution; dealing with uncomfortable physical intimacies; and hiring strangers to provide the most personal care.

Chast's memoir is both comfort and comic relief for anyone experiencing the life-altering loss of elderly parents.

"An achievement of dark humor that rings utterly true." (Washington Post)
