It's difficult to say what The Iron Tonic is about, although it is 'known the skating pond conceals a family of enormous eels', and that 'the light is fading from the day. The rest is darkness and dismay'. Whatever it is about, though, The Iron Tonic could be seen as Edward Gorey's version of a winter afternoon in one of the great Russian novels of the nineteenth century.
Edward Gorey discouraged lengthy biographies of himself. But we take this space to salute his many accomplishments as an illustrator, theatre designer and author, and we mourn the recent passing of a unique and wonderful talent.
