Overview

The Willowdale Handcar, or The Return of the Black Doll by Edward Gorey


In this enigmatic, surreal, wonderfully entertaining tale, three mysterious figures set out from Willowdale, traveling by handcar. On the way to nowhere in particular they pass a number of odd characters and observe a series of baffling phenomena, from a house burning down in a field to a palatial mansion perched precariously on a bluff.

At once deeply vexing and utterly hilarious, darkly mysterious and amusingly absurd, The Willowdale Handcar is vintage Edward Gorey.

This book is absolutely delightful. Full of off-kilter, ominous humor, it's a must for Gorey fans or any readers.
