The first book of 15, "The Unstrung Harp," describes the writing process
of novelist Mr. Clavius Frederick Earbrass: "He must be mad to go on enduring
the unexquisite agony of writing when it all turns out drivel." In "The Listing
Attic," you'll find a set of quirky limericks such as "A certain young man, it
was noted, / Went about in the heat thickly coated; / He said, 'You may scoff,
/ But I shan't take it off; / Underneath I am horribly bloated.'
"

Many of Gorey's tales involve untimely deaths and dreadful mishaps,
but much like tragic Irish ballads with their perky rhythms and melodies, they
come off as strangely lighthearted. "The Gashlycrumb Tinies," for example,
begins like this: "A is for AMY who fell down the stairs, B is for BASIL
assaulted by bears," and so on. An eccentric, funny book for either the
uninitiated or diehard Gorey fans.
