The Willowdale Handcar : or, the Return of the Black Doll, Hardback

The Willowdale Handcar : or, the Return of the Black Doll Hardback

Illustrated by Edward Gorey

5 out of 5 (1 rating)


In this enigmatic, surreal, wonderfully entertaining tale, three mysterious figures set out from Willowdale, travelling 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.

Three friends discover a railway handcart and embark on an epic journey, during which they encounter old friends. Dark, deep and superbly drawn.
