*** Can’t we Talk About Something More Pleasant? by Roz Chast


I’ve reviewed many books about aging parents, some great and others not so great (here, here, here, here, here). Can’t We Talk about Something More Pleasant?, exploring many of the same themes in graphic novel form, tackles the sad, the sordid, the exhausting in a hilarious package that does not avoid the author’s failings or desire to see her parents’ lives end. With many flashbacks to her childhood and her parents’ own lives, this memoir is much more than the grim recounting of their final years. Highly recommended (read it in hard copy, not on a Kindle!)

    Caregiving for Aging Parents that remain in their homes captured my attention during my journey home last evening via radio….there were so many statements relative to my life as it is and hearing them gave me hope. A network for those that are experiencing like situations would be phenomenal.
