What I Hate From A to Z
by Tom Prince, Executive Editor, Reader's Digest magazine
Roz Chast has drawn cartoons for the New Yorker for 33 years, and her anxious, slightly terrified characters populate the pages of What I Hate From A to Z, an abecedarium of worry, doom, and gloom that is funny, fresh, and relatable. Just a few of the things Chast hates (and draws): clowns, kites, tunnels, JELL-O 1-2-3, and spontaneous human combustion. And as you might expect, she hates (and draws) many, many more.
