Gorey Books are Fun!

Gorey books are fun.

After dislocating Gorey’s shoulder, Peter Neumeyer (emeritus professor and founder of SDSU’s children’s literature program) became friends with the reclusive writer and the two of them did books together. In the summer of 2011, Pomegranate Press will publish their correspondence in a work by Neumeyer titled Floating Worlds. These letters provide an intimate portrait of Gorey and of an extraordinary friendship. Keep an eye or two out for it.

After an article in the New York Times tracks new and resurgent interest in the macabre stories and drawings of Edward Gorey, interest has increased.

It is great that letters and works are being published by Gorey for those of us who like their books with a little Gorey on the page. Discuss on the Pryde Forum.
