Review - The Curious Sofa by Edward Gorey


Originally published in 1961
64 pages

If Florence and Emily from Little Britain were to write a pornography, this would be it.

"But we are laaaaaaaadies and we must read laaaaadies pornography you see"

Finally, an Edward Gorey tale that is not wrist slittingly depressing! 
The men are all extraordinarily something or other and the women free from all inhibitions. 
This is a deliciously demented read. However nothing is revealed or shown in the illustrations. It is up the reader to see between the lines and outside the frames of the illustrations.
Of course it wouldn't be Gorey if the characters didn't meet a grisly confusing end..
