"Can't We Talk About Something More Pleasant?"
by Roz Chast (A Memoir)

Like most of us, award-winning cartoonist Roz Chast and her parents were practitioners of death denial for as long as possible. This graphic memoir tells the story of aging parents and their only child coping with a "long goodbye." In funny, sad, and relatable cartoons about the Chast family we can recognize ourselves and our stories, and perhaps shed some of our own death denial.
