He presents this to his readers with his sincere best wishes for a happy new world." The Thurber Carnival, which the Saturday Review called "one of the absolutely essential books of our time," was a phenomenal bestseller when it was first published in 1945. The omnibus, virtually all of which first appeared in The New Yorker, draws from such Thurber classics as My World and Welcome to It, My Life and Hard Times, Fables for Our Time and Famous Poems Illustrated, The Owl in the Attic, The Seal in the Bedroom, and Men, Women and Dogs. - Publisher+-+7435514215271144ocn000290925book19600.24Thurber, JamesLanterns & lancesCriticism, interpretation, etcContains 24 pieces in which the well-known humorist is largely concerned with the survival of our English language, currently being subjected to much erroneous use263364ocn000290915book19500.07Thurber, JamesThe 13 clocksJuvenile worksFictionWith the help of his magical protector, Golux, Prince Zorn performs impossible tasks to win the hand of Princess Saralina+-+7027265406239651ocn000334711book19570.27Thurber, JamesThe years with RossHistoryBiographyJames Thurber's memoir about his years at The New Yorker with its creator and first editor Harold Ross+-+6624045155228623ocn034473991book19960.23Thurber, JamesWritings and drawingsGathers previously uncollected cartoons and humorous stories+-+6776658336215355ocn000577096book19400.26Thurber, JamesFables for our time, and famous poems illustratedJames Thurber has been called "one of our great American institutions' (Stanley Walker), "a magnificent satirist ("Boston Transcript"), and "a Joyce in false-face" ("New York Times"). The "New York Herald Tribune" submits that he is "as blithe as Benchley ... as savage as Swift ... surprisingly wise and witty, " while the "Times" of London, out of enthusiasm and a profound regard for truth, proclaims that "Thurber is Thurber." In "Fables for Our Time," Thurber the Moralist is in the ascendancy. Here are a score or more lessons-in-prose dedicated to conventional sinners and proving--what you will.

He is most famous for the hilarious, often bittersweet stories that he published in the 1930s and 1940s in the New Yorker. Among his best-known books are My Life and Hard Times, Is Sex Necessary? (co-authored with E.B. White), My World - and Welcome to It, and The Thurber Carnival. He was also a brilliant cartoonist. His unique drawings were an eagerly awaited feature in Harold Ross's New Yorker and in Thurber's books. Grauer by no means sentimentalizes Thurber. He addresses serious, and often disturbing, features of Thurber's life (his failed first marriage, alcohol abuse, misogyny, and agonies over going blind when he was at the height of his success). At the same time, Grauer highlights Thurber's courage, inexhaustible humor, and unique literary and artistic talents. The result is a biography that both celebrates Thurber's genius and shrewdly appraises his qualities as a man+-+41052785359354ocn019515980book19890.24Thurber, JamesCollecting himself : James Thurber on writing and writers, humor, and himselfPresents a remarkable body of previously unauthologized drawings and writings by James Thurber that present the beloved humorist as reader, journalist, satirist, comic, and personal respondent to the written world around him7406ocn051968939book20020.24Thurber, JamesThe Thurber letters : the wit, wisdom, and surprising life of James ThurberRecords and correspondence"Though he died more than forty years ago, James Thurber remains one of America's greatest and most enduring humorists, and his books - for both adults and children - remain as popular as ever. In this comprehensive collection of his letters - the majority of which have never before been published - we find unsuspected insights into his life and career." "For the first time, Thurber's daughter Rosemary has allowed the publication of many of the extremely personal letters he wrote early in his life to the women he was - usually hopelessly - in love with, as well as the affectionate and hilarious letters that he wrote to her. In addition, Harrison Kinney, noted Thurber biographer, has located a number of Thurber letters never before published. The Thurber Letters traces Thurber's progress from lovesick college boy to code clerk with the State Department in Paris and reporter for the Columbus Dispatch, through his marriages and love affairs, his special relationship with his daughter, his illustrious and tumultuous years with The New Yorker, his longstanding relationship with E. B. White, his close friendship with Peter De Vries, and his tragic last days. Included in the book are Thurber drawings never before published."--BOOK JACKET+-+38987789256805ocn016406936book19880.37Long, Robert EmmetJames ThurberBiography6565ocn000001108book19680.56Bowden, Edwin TJames Thurber: a bibliographyBibliography5272ocn019554167book19890.31Thurber, JamesConversations with James ThurberInterviews+-+85690532355092ocn010404372book19840.53Kenney, Catherine McGeheeThurber's anatomy of confusionCriticism, interpretation, etc4513ocn028962419book19940.23Thurber, JamesPeople have more fun than anybody : a centennial celebration of drawings and writings by James Thurber : being a hundred or so ...HumorManuscriptsIn this centennial volume of previously uncollected work, James Thurber continues to flourish. Here is the pleasure of recognizing this comic genius at work again, with his suspicious, civilized, unsettling wit. Included are eighteen prose pieces and over seventy-five drawings by the only cartoonist who could claim to draw "abstract things like despair, disillusion, despondency, sorrow, lapse of memory, exile ... sometimes in a shape that might be called Man or Woman." Here are drawings with such contemporary smarts that they still sting, including dozens of reports from the front line in that cold war between the sexes. This is Thurber at his most entertaining, praising things canine in two marvelous tributes, musing over the promises of mail sweepstakes, confessing his aversion to anything mechanical, puzzling over the animal kingdom's curious uprisings, reconsidering the value of Byrd's claiming of the icy lands of Antarctica ("Are we landowners or ice dealers? Are we men or penguins?"), and observing the fate of sex.
