The Curious Sofa: A Pornographic Work by Ogdred Weary

by Edward Gorey Author

Originally written in 1961 and published under the pen name Ogdred Weary, this short book from beloved author and illustrator Edward Gorey can hardly be said to be all that pornographic after all. Instead, the use of innuendo, strategically placed objects, and some suggestions about this 'curious sofa' lend this story a slightly sexy edge. For fans and collectors of Gorey's work, this book is a must-read and a vital addition to any bookshelf.
