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.
