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 the Jumblies' long journey, one stop on the Hills of the Chankly Bore, a passionate relationship was born - between a Jumbly girl and the Dong. The end of the story is sad but sweet, and it stars a nose that can light up a forest, light up the sky! Thwe Dong is some kind of hero, certainly, and he can't help but win hearts with that ptrotuberant proboscis of his! B&W illus.
