    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.
  • Fletcher and Zenobia

    By Edward Gorey

    Our Price: $13.45
    • Format: Hardcover
    • ISBN-13: 9781590179635
    • Publisher: NYR Children's Collection
    • Published: April 2016
    Our story opens with a cat stuck in a tree, an ordinary-enough occurrence. Fletcher the cat, having run up the tree in a moment of thoughtless abandon, cannot get back down. Then strange things begin to happen: Fletcher finds in his tree a steamer trunk full of hats, and among the hats a papier mâché egg that opens to reveal Zenobia, a worldly talking doll who was locked in the egg by an unfeeling child named Mabel. To cheer each other up, Fletcher and Zenobia decide to throw a party, complete with cake, peach ice cream, and punch from a silver punch bowl. The hats come in handy, and a moth, drawn to the festivities, soon becomes the vehicle of an unexpected escape plan. A story of metamorphosis and friendship, like The Owl and the Pussycat crossed with Alice in Wonderland,Fletcher and Zenobia is a wildly imaginative tale of wish fulfillment and freedom. At once silly and zany, it is not without a certain delicacy of feeling that older children, and adults, will also appreciate.

    When massive, intelligent aliens from Mars touch down in Victorian England and threaten to destroy the civilized world, humanity's vaunted knowledge proves to be of little use. First published in 1898, H.G. Wells's masterpiece of speculative fiction has thrilled and delighted generations of readers and spawned countless imitations. In 1960, Edward Gorey prepared a set of his inimitable pen-and-ink drawings to illustrate a new edition of Wells's The War of the Worlds for the legendary Looking Glass Library. This special hardcover edition from NYRB Classics brings back for today's readers a collaboration between two modern masters of all that's wonderful and strange.
