The Doubtful Guest Book

The Doubtful Guest Book

Item # 19166


"When they answered the bell on that wild winter night, there was no one expected -- and no one in sight. Then they saw something standing on top of an urn, whose peculiar appearance gave them quite a turn..." Thus begins one of Edward Gorey's most popular illustrated books, THE DOUBTFUL GUEST, a deliciously twisted comedy of manners, where a scarf and sneaker clad creature overstays its welcome by seventeen years in the home of a staid, Victorian family.
"An artist and writer of genius" (New Yorker) gives us a small-format edition of one of his favorite tales.
