50 Word Friday: What I Hate: From A to Z

What I Hate: From A to Z [Hardcover] [2011] Roz Chast
What I Hate: From A to Z
Author: Roz Chast


What I Hate is an A to Z of epic horrors and daily unpleasantries, including but by no means limited to rabies, abduction, tunnels, and the triple-layered terror of Jell-O 1-2-3. With never-before-published, full-page cartoons for every letter, and supplemental text to make sure the proper fear is instilled in every heart, Chast’s alphabetical compendium will resonate with anyone well-versed in the art of avoidance- and make an instructive gift for anyone who might be approaching life with unhealthy unconcern.


Not this book, I loved it. However, the title is misleading. It is not so much hate as fear, or maybe causes great anxiety. Everything from Alien Abduction to Jello 1-2-3 to Vision Loss are things which cause Chast some bit of anxiety and me some bit of uneasy chuckling.
