Couple of books by Roz Chast

Roz Chast is my #1 favorite among the cartoonists whose works appear regularly in The New Yorker. (Don't you think the cartoons are the reason to flip through a New Yorker?) I have always found her cartoons to be incredibly funny and felt that they depicted the craziness of modern urban life as no other. She focuses purely on the minutiae of domestic life that everyone experiences, but seldom gives a second thought. It helps that I like her simple drawing and coloring style too. Besides The New Yorker, she also draws about the absurdity of modern technology in other media. The Party, After You Left is one of her recent compilations of such cartoons. The selected cartoons each take a while to see and savor, making this a great choice to slowly flip through on a weekend afternoon or as a coffee table book. Lots of snickering and belly laughs guaranteed! 😊
