Reading through Dwight Garner’s New York Times review of the new Janis Joplin biography, “Janis,” by Holly George- Warren:

“She named a dog Thurber, after James Thurber, the New Yorker humor writer.”

More Thurber

From WOSU Public Radio, this conversation with Michael Rosen and Sara Thurber Sauers on the occasion of the Columbus, Ohio Thurber exhibit and publication of A Mile And A Half Of Lines: The Art Of James Thurber (Ohio State University Press).

James Thurber’s entry on the Spill‘s A-Z:

James Thurber Born, Columbus, Ohio, December 8, 1894. Died 1961, New York City. New Yorker work: 1927 -1961, with several pieces run posthumously.  According to the New Yorker’s legendary editor, William Shawn, “In the early days, a small company of writers, artists, and editors — E.B. White, James Thurber, Peter Arno, and Katharine White among them — did more to make the magazine what it is than can be measured.”
