    This multimedia book is delightful in many ways. It offers an immediate experience of Edward Gorey’s art, his passions, and his life from someone who knew him well. EGOS brought Edward Gorey to the chair next to me and kept bringing a smile to my face. The author manages to capture both the spirit and the movement of an extraordinary life in the arts. It is a joy to read, whether or not you know much about the subject.
