This collection displays in glorious abundance the offbeat characters and droll humor of Edward Gorey. Figbash is acrobatic, topiaries are tragic, hippopotami are admonitory, and galoshes are remorseful in this celebration of a unique talent that never fails to delight, amuse, and confound. Amphigorey Again contains previously uncollected work and two unpublished stories--"The Izzard Book," a quirky riff on the letter Z , and "La Malle Saignante," a bilingual homage to early French silent serial movies. Rough sketches and unfinished panels show an ironic and singular mind at work.

A mishmosh of Gorey. Like the Curate's egg, parts of it are quite excellent -- and Gorey was inimitably Gorey. The moments of quirky brilliance outweigh the bits that fall a little flat. He's a five-star person in my world; this is a three-star book; so I've averaged them to give it a 4.
