Some Fun Home news
Friday, May 05, 2006
The UPS guy delivered a copy of my new book, “Fun Home” yesterday. In all my years of publishing books, I’ve never had a hardcover one. It’s pretty beautiful. The book designer and the cover designer did a very elegant job. I opened it with some trepidation, because whenever I look at a new book all I can see are the mistakes. And I did find one straight off, but it was a pretty minor continuity detail. I’m deeply pleased, but not elated, for some reason. I feel a bit like Mr. Earbrass, the protagonist of my favorite Edward Gorey book, The Unstrung Harp. When he spots a copy of his latest novel in the window of a bookseller’s, Mr. E. is overcome by “a state of extreme and pointless embarrassment.”

A most grateful tip o' the nib to Nichael Cramer, who has kindly posted the enlarged artwork in a pan-browser friendly version. To see the large-print comic strip, click here.. This episode is based on an incident that actually happened in a town near where I live in Vermont.
