The Unstrung Harp: or, Mr. Earbrass Writes a Novel, Edward Gorey

4 stars
Gorey is interesting and hard to define. Known for his illustrations as well as his nonsense writing he reminds me of someone you would find drawing cartoons in The New Yorker. This book is for those who have ever thought about or began writing a book. It is a quick read - probably 20-30 minutes. Short paragraphs with corresponding drawings make up this small masterpiece. A creative reflection that would be a worthy read for anyone stuck in a writing rut...
