About this item

Miss D. Awdrey-Gore, renowned 97-year-old writer of detective stories, is found murdered; then a mysterious hidden packet is discovered. Addressed to her publisher, it contains what appear to be notes and drawings related to a literary work in progress. The contents in their entiretythough certain things are patently missing comprise clues about the who, what, when, where, and how of Awdrey-Gores demise. Or do they? Edward Gorey takes us on a rollicking ride in this merry murder mystery, but whether or not the killer is revealed is open to speculation. As one scrap of paper in the packet states, The smallest clue may be (or not) / The one to give away the plot.

Like his fictional dame novelist, Gorey (19252000) was a prolific author. Creator of more than one hundred works, he was also an artist, playwright, award-winning set and costume designer, and creator of the animated introduction to the PBS series Mystery! First published in 1972, The Awdrey-Gore Legacy remains one of Goreys most treasured tales, satisfying the sleuth in each of us.

64 pages with more than 50 color and black-and-white Gorey drawings. Size: 8 1/2 x 6". Hardcover
