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.
Enthusiastic fans might want to know that there was a limited edition made of the Black Doll, in case it turns out that you need one for yourself.
