Cartoonist Roz Chast on Caring for Her Ageing Parents

Cartoonist Roz Chast talks about her experience caring for her ageing parents. Her memoir Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant? spans the last several years of her parents’ lives and is told through four-color cartoons, family photos, and documents, and a narrative that’s both humorous and sobering. It’s a portrait of two lives at their end and an only child coping as best she can.
