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.
