Cartoonist Roz Chast on Manhattan: 'I feel more alive when I'm there'

Part of the pleasure of reading Roz Chast’s cartoons in the New Yorker is realizing your life isn’t so miserable after all. Her characters live in a world filled with petty disappointments. Her books have titles like “What I Hate: From A to Z,” and “Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant?” But her new book is a celebration of her favorite place: “Going into Town: A Love Letter to New York.”
