E is for Earnest who choked on a peach.

N is for Neville who died of ennui.

S is for Susan who perished of fits.

The Gashlycrumb Tinies – Published in 1963 and still as thrilling and lovely as the first time I came upon it, are the macabre illustrations by Edward Gorey.

Girls in their Summer Dresses

Filed under: Uncategorized — thelabyrinthine @ 9:49 am

“When I think of New York City, I think of all the girls on parade in the city. I don’t know whether it’s something special with me or whether every man in the city walks around with the same feeling inside him, but I feel as though I’m at a picnic in this city. I like to sit near women in the theatres, the famous beauties who’ve taken six hours to get ready and look it. And the young girls at the football games, with the red cheeks, and when the warm weather comes, the girls in their summer dresses.” He finished his drink. “That’s the story.”
