Product description

Review

Samuel Hynes author of "Flights of Passage, The Growing Seasons, The Auden Generation," and other major works of literary criticism For readers who believe, as I do, that James Thurber is a permanently important American writer, the publication of "The Thurber Letters" is a major event. The sublime humorist everybody knows is richly here, but so are all the other Thurbers: the social satirist, the sour misogynist, our man at "The New Yorker," the whimsical writer of children's stories, the historian of American trivia, the lover, the father, the friend, the enemy. A big book, as it should be, and a great read all the way. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

About the Author

James Thurber (1894-1961) created some thirty volumes of humour, fiction, children's stories, cartoons and essays in just about as many years. A founding member of The New Yorker staff, Thurber has been translated into dozens of languages throughout the world. Harrison Kinney was a reporter for The New Yorker from 1949 to 1954, he is also the author of several books of non-fiction, a novel, and two children's books. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
