Twenty-six curious creatures—from the fastidious Ampoo to the world's one and only Zote—fill the pages of The Utter Zoo, an alphabet from the untamed imagination of Edward Gorey. The Boggerslosh, the Crunk, and the Dawbis; the Ippagoggy, the Jelbislup, and the Kwongdzu; the Scrug, the Twibbit, and the Ulp—each strange and wonderful zoomate displays its own primary characteristic, described in Gorey's inimitable, droll, rhyming couplets.A writer and artist with an instantly recognizable style, Gorey (American, 1925–2000) created over one hundred works and was also a playwright, an award-winning set and costume designer, and the creator of the animated introduction to the PBS series Mystery! First published in 1967, The Utter Zoo is a favorite of Gorey fans, young and old alike—no matter how well they know their ABCs.

The Quingawaga and Mork, Fidknop and Ampoo are among the fantastical imaginings of Edward Gorey's Utter Zoo Alphabet. The twenty-six postcards (one for each letter of the alphabet) feature Gorey's illustrations of unusual and biologically questionable creatures, each one described by a typically witty Gorey couplet.

In her compelling reexamination of Djuna Barnes's work, Daniela Caselli raises timely questions about Barnes, biography and feminist criticism, identity and authority, and modernist canon formation.
