Roz Chast is the third woman to win the Reuben

The Reuben Awards were given out over the holiday by the National Cartoonists Society, and Roz Chast won the Reuben Award. Chast is only the third woman to win the Reuben—Lynn Johnston won in 1985 and Cathy Guisewaite in 1993—and she beat out Hilary Price and Stephen Pastis for the honor, mostly on the strength of her graphic novel Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant, a book that has racked up a ton of awards and acclaim for Chast. It's been 22 years since the last one. I, for one, can't wait to hear Lynn Johnston's opinion on the subject.
