The Object-Lesson by Edward Gorey.

41bbt4JYPiL._SY332_BO1,204,203,200_

Title: The Object-Lesson.
Author: Edward Gorey.
Genre: Fiction, surrealist fiction, illustrated.
Country: U.S.
Language: English.
Publication Date: 1958.
Summary: Inspired by Samuel Foote's poem, The Grand Panjandrum, the book presents a stunning series of seemingly random and unrelated events. A missing artificial limb, ghostly spectres, and the statue of Corrupted Endeavour all have a place in this enigmatic tale, which combines elements of French surrealism, Japanese haiku, and lots of good fun.

My rating: 7/10.
