The Iron Tonic vol_ 286 - Edwa4288_fSo how do you review an Edward Gorey book?

The Iron Tonic doesn’t have a plot as such. It has twenty-eight lines of poetry. But of course the thing about Gorey is the artwork; the illustrations are wonderful, bizarre, Gothic and worth paying attention to. And the subtitle probably tells you all you need to know: a winter afternoon in Lonely Valley.

And I for one agree that the careful stroller should beware of objects falling from the air….
