    The world of Thurber is splendidly sampled in these thirty stories, sketches, and articles that range from the wildest comedy to the serious business of murder. Animal courtship, maids, Macbeth, baseball, sailing, marriage-all fall within Thurber’s scope. Drawings by the Author/5(5). Among his other works are The Thirteen Clocks (), a children's book, and The Years with Ross (), a memoir of his days with the New Yorker. Thurber's later career was hampered by his growing blindness. Bibliography. See H. Thurber and E. Weeks, ed., Selected Letters of James Thurber () and H. Kinney and R. A. Thurber, ed.

    Thurber's classic book of his selected works has remained in print since What we just discovered was that the original title—the title that appeared on the title page of the advanced reading copy—had the title "The Thurber Merry-Go-Round." Thanks to collector Jay Hoster for sharing this find. James Thurber, best remembered today as the creator of Walter Mitty, is one of the group of staff writers who earned The New Yorker its reputation as the "greatest magazine in the world, perhaps the best that ever was," as the old commercial used to inform us. There were several different types of writers in that group, the infamously long essays were turned out by folks like Joseph Mitchell 4/5.
