This hilarious collaboration between Roz Chast and Patricia Marx is a collection of witty (and real!) pieces of advice New Yorker writer Patricia Marx got from her mother. Our exclusive edition is signed with a special IBD-only jacket.
About the author: Patricia Marx has been contributing to The New Yorker since 1989. She is a former writer for “Saturday Night Live” and “Rugrats,” and is the author of several books. Marx was the fi rst woman elected to the Harvard Lampoon. She has taught screenwriting and humor writing at Princeton, New York University, and Stonybrook University. She was the recipient of a 2015 Guggenheim Fellowship.
About the illustrator: 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.
