Edward Gorey (American, 1925–2000)
Illustration from “Serious Life: A Cruise”
With his masterful pen-and-ink drawings and characteristic droll humor, Edward Gorey’s delightful tales and enigmatic drawings reflect a special kind of genius for what is left unwritten and unseen. One wonders what delicious chaos lurks beneath the off-kilter deck of “Serious Life: A Cruise,” an illustrated short story published in the New Yorker.
