Similar to Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant by Roz Chast – but better! Lucy Knisley’s graphic novel memoir of her Caribbean cruise also addresses the difficulties of aging, but is less depressing. Lucy is a young “poor, single, obsessive freelancer” who gets the opportunity to accompany her grandparents on a trip. Her “grands” are in their 90s, so her help will be invaluable. This is also an opportunity for her to spend more time getting to know them better. She has a copy of her grandfather’s writings about WWII, which are interspersed with the modern-day story. Nothing seems to go well on this trip. This is one of the best of the new adult graphic novels with both humor and sadness. The illustration is lovely. A great read!
