Howard Moss (1922 - 1987) was an American poet, critic, and dramatist. He is credited with discovering a number of major American poets while being the poetry editor of The New Yorker. This book contains many vignettes about famous people but told in an amusing way - sometimes as biographies or made up stories in the type of language that author might have used. Dust jacket and 25 illustrations by Edward Gorey (1925 - 2000), an American artist and writer, best known for his eccentric imagery and stories, often set in Victorian and Edwardian settings.
