Product Description

The Hapless Child is widely regarded as one of Edward Gorey’s best books; happily it is now back in print. The sorry tale of petite Charlotte Sophia’s catastrophic life is classic Gorey stuff—orphaned, mercilessly hazed by schoolmates, enslaved by a brute. After an absence of many years we can all enjoy weeping for Charlotte Sophia again . . . and again, and again.
