Either Laugh or Cry

Roz Chast, staff cartoonist for The New Yorker, has a new book out on care of her elderly parents.

I haven't read it yet, but it's probably a great gift for anyone involved in elder care.

It was a finalist for the 2014 National Book Award, as well as a #1 NYT bestseller and one of the top 100 books chosen by Amazon's editors.

Here's a quote from them:

the themes are universal: adult children accepting a parental role; aging and unstable parents leaving a family home for an institution; dealing with uncomfortable physical intimacies; managing logistics; and hiring strangers to provide the most personal care.
