Edward Gorey

...E is for Edward Gorey, F is for Funny... 
Apparently Mr Gorey bunked with poet Frank O'Hara while they were both at Harvard in the 1940's. I like to imagine the two sitting on their hardwood floor den together in the middle of the night, lighted only by candle and the moon coming through the glass panes, sharing drawings and text back-and-forth on small pieces of paper, like two lovers.  No homo.
