Just the graphics on the cover told me this book would be funny, maybe even helpful. It looked like the author was writing about something I had been through….something one doesn’t talk a lot about, except to family or very close friends. The realization that parents are getting older, and may need help, challenges an adult child who finds these facts on the one hand, unbelievable, on the other, overwhelming. Chast shares honest, typical, sad, and humorous happenings that occur when becoming deeply involved with her parents care. Don’t expect a how-to book on Medicare and assisted living choices, but you can expect an honest account of Chast’s experience.
