Thurber Thursday: An Assortment Of Paperbacks; Today’s Daily Cartoonist & Cartoon

Thurber Thursday

One of the best things about visiting a used book store is coming upon the unexpected. Nearly all of the above came to me that way. Of all these, my favorite cover is one of the simplest: the 1962 edition of Thurber Country, published by Penguin Books in Great Britain:

Finally, if you want a brand new Thurber book to dive into, I highly recommend Michael Rosen’s fab A Mile And A Half Of Lines: The Art Of James Thurber.

Thurber Thursday; Today’s Daily Cartoonist & Cartoon; Article Of Interest: Sipress’s Appropriated Cartoon

A weekly time-out with something Thurber.

In this first installment of Thurber Thursday I thought I’d show my copy of Burton Bernstein’s Thurber: A Biography. It’s in rough shape now, as you can see; I bought it new in 1975, the year it was published. I was in college, in the beginning years of being totally gaga about everything Thurber, everything New Yorker. The publication of Mr. Bernstein’s book was a dream come true. It is, with the exception of Thurber’s own Thurber Carnival (known around here as “the bible”) the book I’ve re-read the most. When I finally met Mr. Bernstein a few years ago, I was so pleased to be able to tell him what his book meant and still means to me.
