Roz Chast

Roz Chast has loved to draw cartoons since she was a child growing up in Brooklyn. She attended Rhode Island School of Design, majoring in Painting because it seemed more artistic. However, soon after graduating, she reverted to type and began drawing cartoons once again. Her cartoons have also been published in many other magazines besides The New Yorker, including Scientific American, the Harvard Business Review, Redbook, and Mother Jones. Her most recent book is Going Into Town: A Love Letter to New York. In 2014, her graphic memoir about her parents' final years, Can't We Talk About Something More Pleasant? won the Kirkus Prize, the National Book Critics Circle Award, and was a finalist for the National Book Award.
