‘The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories’ exquisitely conveys the pain of an adolescent outsider. Like Tim Burton’s movies, the work manages to be both childlike and sophisticated, blending the innocent with the macarbe.’ New York Times
Featuring twenty-three illustrated gothic tales from the dark corridors of imagination, this book includes illustrations that evoke both the sweetness and tragedy of these hopeful, yet hapless beings.
