Roz Chast, "Going To Town"
Chast's distinctive cartoons have been a feature of The New Yorker since 1978, and have been collected in The Party, After You Left, and Theories of Everything. Her graphic memoir, Can't We Talk About Something More Pleasant?, touched both hearts and funny bones with its frank depiction of aging. In her new work, Chast, a quintessential New Yorker despite now living in Connecticut, gives a tour of the Big Apple that's unlike any other. From the range of attire to ways of negotiating crowds, from stories she's lived to those she's overheard, Chast captures the city's dazzling sights, sounds, and spontaneity.
