Buchbeschreibung Hardback. Zustand: New. Edward Gorey (illustrator). Language: English. Brand new Book. On November 18th of alternate years Mr Earbrass begins writing 'his new novel.' Weeks ago he chose its title at random from a list of them he keeps in a little green note-book. It being tea-time of the 17th, he is alarmed not to have thought of a plot to which The Unstrung Harp might apply, but his mind will keep reverting to the last biscuit on the plate. So begins what the Times Literary Supplement called a small masterpiece. TUH is a look at the literary life and its attendant woes: isolation, writer's block, professional jealousy, and plain boredom. But, as with all of Edward Gorey's books, TUH is also about life in general, with its anguish, turnips, conjunctions, illness, defeat, string, parties, no parties, urns, desuetude, disaffection, claws, loss, trebizond, napkins, shame, stones, distance, fever, antipodes, mush, glaciers, incoherence, labels, miasma, amputation, tides, deceit, mourning, elsewards. You get the point. Finally, TUH is about Edward Gorey the writer, about Edward Gorey writing The Unstrung Harp. It's a cracked mirror of a book, and it's dedicated to RDP or Real Dear Person.

Buchbeschreibung Hardcover. Zustand: COLLECTIBLE - NEW. Zustand des Schutzumschlags: New. Edward Gorey (Author-Illustrator) (illustrator). 1981 Re-issue, 1st Printing. BRAND NEW & Collectible. 1981 re-issue, First Printing. First published 1953. The tale of the upspeakable woes of literary life (or, life in general?) through the agonies a labors of Mr C(lavius) F(rederick) Earbrass as he writes yet another novel. Mr. Earbass, having successfully produced A Moral Dustbin, More Chains Than Clank, Was It Likely?, and, the acclaimed Hipdeep triology, habitually begins new projects on November 18th of alternate years. In a timely fashion, Mr Earbrass sits down to attend to his 'new novel', The Unstrung Harp, and we get to witness his sufferings of isolation, anxious confrontation with writer's block, shameful thoughts of professional jealousies, and, just plain boredom?! Now, is C.F. Earbass, in truth, none other than Edward Gorey (1925 - 2000) himself? The answer lies on the back cover of both the illustrated boards and dust jacket where the reader is priviledged to find a pen & ink rendering of "Mr Gorey, Mr Earbrass, and a Knowledgeable Friend." A masterful and mysterious masterpiece, beautifully printed in Singapore. Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers 002529
