  1. Miranda Readssays:

    3.5 stars But did anyone really know him Did he even want to be known. Edward Gorey is famously infamous Being nil, Gorey decided, was the safest policy. His work provided the scaffolding and inspiration for Neil Gaiman s Coraline, for Tim Burton s creeptacular movies, for Lemony Snicket s Series of Unfortunate Events and so much.And yet, surprisingly little is known about him He wrote many delightfully macabre books, which alternately impressed and horrified publishers There s [...]

  2. Jeffrey Keetensays:

    Only now are art critics, scholars of children s literature, historians of book cover design and commercial illustration, and chroniclers of the gay experience in postwar America waking up to the fact that Gorey is a critically neglected genius His consummately original vision expressed in virtuosic illustrations and poetic texts but articulated with equal verve in book jacket design, verse plays, puppet shows, and costumes and sets for ballets and Broadway productions has earned him a place Onl [...]

    Born to Be Posthumous The Eccentric Life and Mysterious Genius of Edward Gorey by Mark Deryis a book I requested and the review is voluntary.I didn t even know who Edward Gorey was when I started this book, is that bad Well I sure do now I love how this book is written It is full of character and is very colorful just like the subject Each chapter heading is unique, and the interviews, the subjects, the content, and the personal details are totally remarkably I started out knowing nothing Born t [...]

  4. Johnsays:

    I m less than thrilled with the idea of readers receiving a book from a publisher in exchange for a review I m unsure why that is permitted at all, but at least it is noted when it occurs.I found this book neither good nor bad Does it capture Gorey s unique genius No Does it focus too much on his sexuality Yes.Meh Stick to Gorey himself.

  5. Samanthasays:

    So, are we just all gonna ignore the fact that Dery posthumously outed Gorey Page 136 If such articles are to be believed, then Gorey wasn t necessarily gay, even though he was a lifelong bachelor who dressed in necklaces and furs.he was just asexual, a kind of lovable eunich Page 138 Gorey kept perfectly mum about his true nature to the press he only spoke about it in his art And in a way, to be honest, the glass closet was appropriate to his artistic persona, which was neither her So, are we j [...]

  6. Thomas Plucksays:

    It illuminates without washing out the wonder of the works or the man himself A worthwhile read, like discovering Gorey s unique world again.

  7. Tonysays:

    BORN TO BE POSTHUMOUS 2018 Mark Dery.This is an excellent study appreciation of Edward Gorey The full title runs on The Eccentric Life and Mysterious Genius of Edward Gory I didn t know much about Gorey before reading this book, but that has changed it all Gorey has a big following I can recognize his work, but I am not a collector The only short coming of this book was its paucity of its illustrations Although there were many reproductions of his work, there were too few He BORN TO BE POSTHUMOU [...]
