In her latest reserve, I Should Be Dreaming (Bloomsbury), Chast plumbs the depths of her subconscious and explores the broader philosophies encompassing how and why we desire in a way completely suited to her medium.

Also, as I get more mature and closer to the Huge Fall-Off, I’ve normally believed about what Heraclitus [Greek philosopher from about 500 B.C.E.] believed. He reported dreaming is proof that daily life and dying are not opposites—they’re simply factors together a continuum. If nearly anything, I have only gotten a lot more interested in goals in excess of time.”
