Most titles are on our shelves or available within 1-5 days.
Wickedly penned by Dr. Jordan B. Peterson, best-selling author of 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos, An ABC of Childhood Tragedy unforgettably depicts the doomed and desperate lives of Adella, Bertram, Cynthia and their cohort of catastrophe.
Twenty-six dark and witty poems, each a tragic comedy of innocence and vulnerability. Twenty-six hauntingly beautiful portrayals of injustice and suffering, each from the gifted imagination of Juliette Fogra, illustrator of Beyond Order: 12 More Rules of Life. If A Nightmare before Christmas or Coraline struck you to the heart; if the gothic raillery of Edward Gorey’s Gashlycrumb Tinies seduced you to smile satirically; if the Brothers Grimm were nowhere near grim enough for you; then An ABC of Childhood Tragedy might just be the book you’ve been pining for.
