Book On The Horizon: Jason Adam Katzenstein’s “Everything Is An Emergency”; Yesterday’s Daily Cartoon And Daily Shouts Cartoonists

From Jason Adam Katzenstein, this title out in June from Harper Perennial: Everything Is An Emergency: An OCD Story in Words & Pictures .

From the publisher: Insightful, hilarious, and moving, Everything Is an Emergency is Jason’s way of showing us that OCD can be funny in addition to being difficult, and though there might be dead ends and deep holes, there are also ways out of these holes. And as Jason has discovered, while unmaking habits is hard, nothing worth doing is ever easy. 

Mr. Katzenstein began contributing to The New Yorker in 2014.

New Yorker Cartoonists (And Cakes) At The Magazine’s Holiday Party

Here are a few scenes from last night’s merry New Yorker Holiday Party. A happy throng filled a giant room on the 33rd floor of 1 World Trade Center.

All photos courtesy of Liza Donnelly, unless otherwise attributed. My thanks to cartoonists Liza  Donnelly, Joe Dator, Felipe Galindo, and Jason Chatfield for their photos.

Party-goers brought food and drink (it was pot-luck), a nice throw-back to what I recall of department holiday parties many decades ago at the magazine’s 2nd address, 25 West 43rd Street.

 

Of the many cakes and cookies present (and presented), here’s one that sported a familiar face ( photo courtesy Joe Dator).
