About the book:

Perhaps one of his most autobiographical works, "The Unstrung Harp" is a look at the literary life and its 'attendant woes: isolation, writer's block, professional jealousy, and plain boredom.' But as with all of Edward Gorey's books, "TUH" is also about life in general, with its anguish, turnips, conjunctions, illness, defeat, string, parties, no parties, desuetude, fever, tides, labels, mourning, elsewards. Finally, "TUH" is about Edward Gorey the writer, about Edward Gorey writing "The Unstrung Harp". Originally published in 1953, it's a small masterpiece.
