The following is an interview with Roz Chast, a New Yorker cartoonist for the last 29 years. She is interviewed by Steve Martin; they make for a delightful and funny interview. http://www.newyorker.com/online/video/2006/10/09/comicturn

You're right, very funny! I thought I had never heard of Roz Chast but then I looked her up and realized that I DO know her work. She's hilarious and I like her drawings.

Thanks, MEF! She is really funny. I particularly liked the drawing of the expensive modern room she did from a photograph in an Architectural Magazine.

I see that the book she and Steve Martin were plugging is available now.

bookfinder.com: The Alphabet from A to Y with Bonus Letter Z!

[rant]Take a look at the "find more copies" link on the bookfinder.com site and notice that if it's ordered from Amazon.com
[United States] the cost is C$20.42 but from Amazon.ca [Canada] the very same book costs C$21.54. The prices include shipping and handling and the site is assuming that the book will be ordered from Canada. stomp

Does this make sense? Even though the Canadian dollar is now just a little higher than the US dollar? Unfortunately, yes. Canada Post costs more than US post! la la la [/rant]

For the first half of the interview I was worried that either I'd lost my sense of humour or I was missing the point somehow but for the second half I was laughing out loud and so was my seventeen year old son who had just wandered into the room. I'm tempted to use some of the "low goals" ideas myself.


I can buy the book from amazon.co.uk for 8.77 British Pound = 17.41 Canadian Dollar but I suspect the cost of sending it to Canada would more than remove the benefit. However if you're ever in the area...
