Originally released in paperback in 2000, The Strange Case Edward Gorey, a biography of the illustrator and children’s book creator, was written by Alexander Theroux who combines artistic analysis, personal reminiscence (the two were friends and neighbors for over 25 years), and an intimate familiarity with Gorey’s œuvre to create the most revealing and intimate portrait yet of the beloved but reclusive and enigmatic artist.

Review:

The Strange Case of Edward Gorey revels in Gorey’sintelligence, wit, and marvelous eccentricities.--Alex Beam

The Strange Case of Edward Gorey revels in Gorey's intelligence, wit, and marvelous eccentricities. --Alex Beam

The Strange Case of Edward Gorey revels in Gorey s intelligence, wit, and marvelous eccentricities. --Alex Beam"

This is a loving memoir of a singular artist, written by a best friend, one of the most talented novelists in America.

An addictively readable book, stuffed with scandalous morsels of gossip, piquant table talk (Gorey and Theroux were friends), the author's staircase wit, and his sharply perceptive insights into the mind and art of the incalculable, eccentric Gorey. A poisoned bon-bon of a book. To be read aloud to a friend, in bed, with a glass of absinthe on the night table.--Mark Dery

The Strange Case of Edward Gorey revels in Gorey's intelligence, wit, and marvelous eccentricities. --Alex Beam
