From Publisher’s Weekly, the bible of the publishing industry, comes this announcement of a recent deal:

“Cultural critic Mark Dery’s THE DOUBTFUL GUEST: The Mysterious Mind and Legendary Life of Edward Gorey, the first true biography of Gorey, one of the distinctive literary forces of the last half of the twentieth century, looking at his impact on children’s literature, illustration, and popular culture, to Michael Sand at Little, Brown, at auction, in a good deal, by Andrew Stuart at The Stuart Agency.”

I was born to write this book.
