Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant? by Roz Chast
The book at Amazon and on Kindle
The introduction to Roz Chast’s memoir, Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant, pictures an eight-panel, full-color comic of an aging couple sitting on the sofa beside their daughter. As the daughter precariously and awkwardly attempts to involve her parents in a talk about “things” (“What kind of things?” they ask; “Plans,” she responds, adding, “I have no idea what you guys want!”), the couple throws their hands in the air, looks blankly at her, shrugs, and even laughs. “Am I the only sane person here???” she finally asks, exasperated.
