Book Club Reads: Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant by Roz Chast

Can't We Talk About Something More Plesant (1)

Another graphic novel! This one is a graphic memoir by Roz Chast.

I asked my Book Club ladies to at least try it. There were reports from other book club leaders that some were grumbling from this choice – so, what did the ladies think?

I was shocked when 85% of the group said they really enjoyed it!

The majority thought the writing was hilarious and so profoundly personal. The subject matter was something that they related a lot to.

Most of them had gone through the situation or were going through a similar situation. It was one of the only times I let long discussions of their personal life in to the actual book club discussion.

When I told them she has another book coming out soon they were excited.

I feel so happy with the outcome of the book club. This is also one of my favorite books, so I’m glad they enjoyed it!
