The Willowdale Handcar : or, the Return of the Black Doll Hardback
by Edward Gorey
Illustrated by Edward Gorey
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.

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