The Sopping Thursday

Edward Gorey
San Francisco: Pomegranate
Special Collections and University Archives

The Sopping Thursday is unique among other works by Gorey.  A dog on the hunt for a missing umbrella meets a thief, an endangered child, and weeping salesclerks, among others.  One of the few books to feature a happy ending, the book features minimalist text with Gorey’s iconic black and white line drawings.
