Roz Chast has loved to draw cartoons since she was a child growing up in Brooklyn. She attended Rhode Island School of Design, majoring in Painting because it seemed more artistic. However, soon after graduating, she reverted to type and began drawing cartoons once again. 

Her cartoons have been published in many other magazines besides The New Yorker, including Scientific American, the Harvard Business Review, Redbook, and Mother Jones. She also illustrated The Alphabet from A to Y, with Bonus Letter, Z, the best-selling children's book by Steve Martin. Her most recent book is a comprehensive compilation of her favorite cartoons called Theories of Everything: Selected, Collected, and Health-Inspected Cartoons of Roz Chast, 1978-2006

The New Times Book Review raves about the wacky world of Roz Chast and her neurotic New Yorkers, saying "Ms. Chast's voice...is delightfully her own, as idiosyncratic and instantly recognizable as the voice of any poet or novelist." 

Roz Chast has received honorary doctorates from Dartmouth College, the Pratt Institute and the Art Institute of Boston. She lives in Ridgefield, CT with her husband and two children.
