The Thurber Carnival
Publisher: Harper PerennialFormat: Paperback
James Thurber's unique ability to convey the vagaries of life in a funny, witty, and often satirical way earned him accolades as one of the finest humorists of the twentieth century. A bestseller upon its initial publication in 1945. “The Thurber Carnival” captures the depth and breadth of his talent. The pieces here, almost all of which first appeared in “The New Yorker, ”include selections from such beloved classics as “ My World and Welcome to It, The Owl in the Attic, The Seal in the Bathroom, ” and “Men, Women and Dogs.” Thurber's take on life, society, and human nature is timeless and will continue to delight readers even as they recognize a bit of themselves in his brilliant sketches.
