PRAISE FOR EDWARD GOREY
"A master of a genre of graphic storytelling [and] a brilliant draftsman."--The New York Times Book Review
"Dark masterpieces of surreal morality . . . Beautifully depicted."--Vanity Fair
"Gorey''s unique talent should be represented as completely as possible in every collection of American art and literature...[AMPHIGOREY AGAIN] is for smart, quiet, arty, mildly daft sorts of all ages."
"Although it''s his drawings that hold us--the theatrical poses, the bespoke furniture in penumbral mansions, the malicious topiary--Gorey was also a unique literary stylist...[He] collaborated with phantoms drawn from his own private alphabet."
