“What appeals to me most is an idea expressed by Eluard. He has a line about there being another world, but it’s in this one. And Raymond Queneau said the world is not what it seems–but it isn’t anything else, either. These two ideas are the bedrock of my approach. If a book is only what it seems to be about, then somehow the author has failed.”-Edward Gorey (in The Lion and the Unicorn, Number I, 1978)
I share this philosophy.
