Description

"A is for Amy who fell down the stairs. B is for Basil assaulted by bears. C is for Clara who wasted away. D is for
Desmond thrown out of a sleigh..." The rhyming couplets of this grim abecedarian are familiar, of course, to devotees of
macabre humor, but the darkly crosshatched drawings are (as Poe put it) "the soul of the plot." Several years went by
during which The Gashlycrumb Tinies: Or, After the Outing was not available in a small hardcover edition like this one,
which is the true format for Edward Gorey's specialty, the adult picture book. (For those who wish to share the gloom
there's a 10-copy assortment with The Curious Sofa.)
