<b>#1 <i>New York Times </i>Bestseller</b><br /><br /><b>2014 NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FINALIST</b><br /><br />In her first memoir, <i>New Yorker</i> cartoonist Roz Chast brings her signature wit to the topic of aging parents. Spanning the last several years of their lives and told through four-color cartoons, family photos, and documents, and a narrative as rife with laughs as it is with tears, Chast's memoir is both comfort and comic relief for anyone experiencing the life-altering loss of elderly parents.<br /><br />When it came to her elderly mother and father, Roz held to the practices of denial, avoidance, and distraction. But when Elizabeth Chast climbed a ladder to locate an old souvenir from the "crazy closet”-with predictable results-the tools that had served Roz well through her parents' seventies, eighties, and into their early nineties could no longer be deployed. <br /><br />While the particulars are Chast-ian in their idiosyncrasies-an anxious father who had relied heavily on his wife for stability as he slipped into dementia and a former assistant principal mother whose overbearing personality had sidelined Roz for decades-the themes are universal: adult children accepting a parental role; aging and unstable parents leaving a family home for an institution; dealing with uncomfortable physical intimacies; managing logistics; and hiring strangers to provide the most personal care. <br /><br />An amazing portrait of two lives at their end and an only child coping as best she can, <i>Can't We Talk about Something More Pleasant</i> will show the full range of Roz Chast's talent as cartoonist and storyteller.

In this memoir, penned by the late Jerry Robinson in his final years, he tells the story of a seventeen-year-old college hopeful who became the artist on <i>Detective Comics</i>, and later <i>Batman,</i> shares his thoughts on creating the Joker as the first super villain, and relates the celebrity-studded journeys that a long life in comics afforded him. <br /><br />In this volume, you'll also find never before published original artwork from iconic comics like <i>Detective Comics </i>#76 and <i>Batman</i> #14 and cover artwork featuring Batman, Robin, and the Joker, delving deep into imagery that has shaped the evolution of comics' most famous villain.<br /><br />"I always thought that heroes were essentially dull. Villains were more exotic and could do more interesting things". <br />-Jerry Robinson
