The Haunted Tea-Cosy: A Dispirited and Distasteful Diversion for Christmas Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Gorey has never been funnier or more “impossible to resist” (Boston Herald) than in this peculiar retelling of Charles Dickenss A Christmas Carol.

Review:

"Mr. Gorey could, no doubt, conjure perversely sinister chuckles from an antimacassar, but a tea-cosy serves just as well. No Gorey admirer should overlook this 'Diversion for Christmas.'" Phoebe-Lou Adams, The Atlantic Monthly

Review:

"As always, Gorey's illustrations are the real draw. His human figures and weird creatures, at once stilted and animated, amuse and titillate us." Booklist

Review:

"Dark masterpieces of surreal morality...beautifully depicted." Vanity Fair

About the Author

Edward Gorey (1925-2000) wrote and illustrated such popular books as The Doubtful Guest, The Gashlycrumb Tinies, and The Headless Bust. He was also a very successful set and costume designer, earning a Tony Award for his Broadway production of Edward Gorey's Dracula. Animated sequences of his work have introduced the PBS series Mystery! since 1980.
