  • If you know Roz Chast’s cartoons, you know Roz Chast. You know she’s funny. And perceptive. And prone to outbursts of delicious quirk. You also know she’s every inch the Big Apple native, her New Yorker bona fides evident in her New Yorker cartoons — the streets, the subways, the apartments crammed with odd ducks and overstuffed couches.

  • "House of Holy Fools: A Family Portrait in Six Cracked Parts" concerns the grace and genius of author Amy Biancolli's '85 grandparents--music critic Louis Biancolli and violinist Jeanne Mithcell Biancolli- and her sister Lucy, an aspiring painter. All three of Biancolli's family members died within 26 months of each other between 1992 and 1994; Biancolli captivates the lives of her family members and her coveted relationships with them. "Written with humor and hope, it is a memoir of music, madness, miracles, faith and the insistent tug of life in the face of grief and death," writes Biancolli.
