    The 21 conversations collected here (1973-1999) reveal Gorey in his own words, ruminating on everything from French symbolist poetry to soap operas, from George Balanchine to yard sales. We meet the artist in his ramshackle book-lined studio in Manhattan and his equally bizarre house on Cape Cod (now transformed into a Gorey museum), and listen as he describes his eclectic obsessions and tastes. And to add delight to the experience, thebook is dottedwith Gorey illustrations. Endnotes, index. 292p.

    On a long trip abroad, Gorey's young Drusilla is introduced to high art and gourmet meals. She gamely tries to appreciate the museums, rich food, and architectural wonders that delight her parents, only to find herself drifting along in a puzzling world. But then Miss Skrim-Pshaw takes her for tea with Mr. Crague, a sockless elderly man with a notable past, and their brief encounter is what will haunt Dusilla years later. Her casual promise to the old man has led to sudden recollection, then sad regret. A curious coming-of-age tale in which Gory employs his signature dark umor and exquisite illustrastions to portray the precociousness of a child on the brink of adulthood. B&W illus. 64p.
