The original Edward Gorey cover is also rather excellent.https://leavesandpages.files.wordpress.com/2012/08/lets-kill-uncle-original-cover-rohan-ogrady.jpgApparently there was a critical rediscovery of O'Grady following a Believer article about this book, which led to a reprint edition a few years back. Definitely interested in tracking down the Gorey edition someday.
They never used the term 'cougar' back then the way we do now, right? This is a literal cougar being put-upon?
Correct Derek! Alas.
I had the same cougar thought. That write up (so delightful!) just doesn't tie with the cover art or title, does it? Fantastic stuff.
Great Gorey cover!
