The title of this second volume of Edward Gorey's collected works stems from the word amphigory, meaning a nonsense verse. As always, Gorey's cross-hatched pen and ink drawings are perfectly suited to his oddball, macabre verse and prose. Many of Gorey's tales involve untimely deaths and dreadful mishaps - sometimes with a lighthearted touch, and sometimes not so much. An eccentric, funny and peculiar book for the uninitiated - or die-hard Gorey fans.
