Readers and viewers of previous collaborations of Felicia Lamport and Edward Gorey know that their combined impact is greater than the sum of their arts. This book of verbal and visual satire is an elegant potpourri of wit, originality, and impeccable technique. Their ironic glances zero in on our culture, from politics to dieting, from gardening to sexual peccadilloes, from middle age to the fuel crisis, with consummate style and high comedy. Includes poems of The Nightmare Before Christmas.
