November 2017: Going Into Town: A Love Letter to New York by Roz Chast

Roz Chast
We have been HUGE Roz Chast fans since well before the idea of Joie de Vivre was a gleam in our eye, and have sold every one of her cartoon books from limited artist editions to the collection titled Theories of Everything. The only one that did not appear here was her most recent — the occasionally funny but completely heartbreaking story of her parent's deaths — Can't We Talk About Something More Pleasant? Read it, loved it, but not really right for the store.

So — we were completely thrilled to see that there is a NEW book from Roz Chast and we just had to make it our item of the month. We proudly present it to you now: Going into Town, A Love Letter to New York.  Someone called it a "hilarious illustrated ode/guide/thank-you/note to Manhattan" and we agree. If you like Roz and you like New York — this is for you!
hardcover; 176 pages
