Synopses & Reviews
“One of Mr. Goreys wordless masterworks.”—New York Times
Edward Goreys The West Wing is an invitation to the imagination. On each page, a room beckons, inviting the reader to wonder why three shoes lie here abandoned, what is retreating in that mirrors reflection, or why there is an imprint of a body on the wallpaper, faded and floating four feet above the floor. A wordless mystery, it is one of Goreys finest works.
