The Strange Case of Edward Gorey

(2000)
A non fiction book by

 
 
An intimate, revealing look into the life and art of an American original. Drawing on exclusive interviews conducted with the artist shortly before his passing in 2000, National Book Award-nominee Alexander Theroux combines artistic analysis, personal reminiscence (the two were friends and neighbors for over 25 years), and an intimate familiarity with Gorey's oeuvre to create the most revealing and intimate portrait yet of the beloved but reclusive and enigmatic artist. Originally released in paperback in 2000 but out of print for most of the last decade, this re-release is an essential book for all Gorey fans and scholars. Black-and-white illustrations and photographs throughout.
