Edward Gorey's Books of Eerie GloryBy Joan Acocella. I always pick up Henry James and I think, Oooh! This is won derful! And then I will hear a little sound. And the whole thing is going down the drain like the bathwater.

There are fancier names if you think they sound sweeter, Some for the gentlemen, some for the dames: Such as Plato, Admetus, Electra, Demeter — But all of them sensible everyday names. Of names of this kind, I can give you a quorum, Such as Munkustrap, Quaxo, or Coricopat, Such as Bombalurina, or else Jellylorum — Names that never belong to more than one cat.

The Gashlycrumb Tinies By Edward Gorey
Edward Gorey was an American illustrator and writer, chiefly remembered for his illustrated books. Once you've seen a bit of Gorey's work, it becomes instantly recognizable. His books are full of rich, strange characters. Pipe-thin men and women in fancy dress, cats in clothing, fantastical, mythical creatures including one that looks like a cheerful leech with butterfly wings , treacherous villains and much, much more. One of his earliest and strangest creatures was The Doubtful Guest , a moody and stubborn creature that resembled a furry penguin in high-top sneakers and a striped scarf.
