KIRKUS REVIEW

A notable collection of Thurber-iana, that gives a fine picture of the weather in the author's soul, from antic drawings, to biographical sketches and short stories, that shows the amazing variety of the man's abilities for catching the mood, essence and feel of character and situation. This selection, covering 1 years, includes the best of his work and is a really worthwhile addition to the humor section, so important today. There are 5 unpublished (in book form); 5 from My World and Welcome To It; eight from Let Your Mind Alone; 13 from The Middle-Aged Man on the Flying Trapeze; the complete My Life and Hard Times; 13 Fables for Our Time; 5 Illustrated Poems; a selection from The Owl in the Attic; and drawings, including all of The War Between Men and Women.... As February BOM selection, its sale should go even farther than the Thurber clan.
