Book Talk and Signing with Patricia Marx and Roz Chast - Darien Community Center

January 15 @ 6:45 pm - 8:30 pm

The perfect Valentine’s Day or anniversary gift: An illustrated collection of love and relationship advice from The New Yorker writer Patricia Marx, with illustrations from The New Yorker cartoonist Roz Chast.

Everyone’s heard the old advice for a healthy relationship: Never go to bed angry. Play hard to get. Sexual favors in exchange for cleaning up the cat vomit is a good and fair trade.

Okay, not that last one. It’s one of the tips in You Can Only Yell at Me for One Thing at a Time: Rules for Couples by the authors of Why Don’t You Write My Eulogy Now So I Can Correct It: A Mother’s Suggestions. This guide will make you laugh, remind you of why your relationship is better than everyone else’s, and solve all your problems.

Patricia Marx is a former writer for “Saturday Night Live” and was the first woman elected to the Harvard Lampoon. Roz Chast (pictured below on right) attended Rhode Island School of Design and has loved to draw cartoons since she was a child growing up in Brooklyn.
