Book review: The Gashlycrumb Tinies, Edward Gorey



Hooray for Gorey and his twisted, macabre brain. For those of us who delight in his ghastly wit, this is an alphabetical list of tragic ends.

"N is for Neville, who died of ennui."

Wickedly witty. Mightily morbid.

  1. I love Edward Gorey. I had the good fortune of seeing his Dracula exhibition at the Cartoon Museum in S.F. earlier this year.

  2. I'm entirely jealous, Annie. I would have loved to have seen that!
