New Yorker cartoonist Roz Chast talks about her new book, "What to Hate from A to Z." The alphabet book pairs Chast's cartoons with descriptions of her dislikes. Among the items that make her cringe: flying, heights and the color yellow.

"Some of the things that really bother me are things that are supposed to be really cheery, but aren't," Chast tells Madeleine Brand.

Chast also explains what it's like to work for the New Yorker, and admits she's not a fan of the magazine's famous weekly cartoon contest.
