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
