a depressing graphic memoir

Can't We Talk about Something More Pleasant? by Roz Chast
Can’t We Talk about Something More Pleasant?

By: Roz Chast

Genre:  Adult graphic novel

Pages: 228

Published: 2014

Read: November

3 out of 5

This graphic novel was overwhelmingly depressing. I knew that going into it (ex: the title itself). But come on, there could have been some humor added about taking care of your elderly parents; not just the burden and guilt of having to do so. There were a few laughs (when her mother sh%$ all over her bathroom) and a few heartwarming moments with her dad. Most of it though was Roz complaining and bickering about her responsibility. Who wants to read a book like that? It made me think of what I have to look forward to in the future and the hassle I may be on my daughter, who is also an only child. I just pray I go quickly. However, the artwork and pictures were fantastic. So if you read, just be prepared.
