Peter Neumeyer founded SDSU's Children's Literature Program. He was also good friends with noted author Edward Gorey, with whom he wrote a number of children's books (notably the Donald series). Now Pomegranate Press has published correspondence between the two (some 75 letters and 60 postcards) including the lavish illustrations that appeared on them. Neumeyer adds an Introduction and explanatory notes as well. We salute our colleague for this milestone publication:
Floating World: The Letters of Edward Gorey & Peter F. Neumeyer. Ed. by Peter F. Neumeyer. 265 pages. Pomegranate Press. ISBN 978-0-7649-5947-9. $35. Hardcover. Release date: September 15, 2011.
