James Thurber is a masterful writer, humorist, and creator of enduring characters: Walter Mitty and the Lemming, included herein, have a permanent place in our culture. These 22 complete stories from Part I of My World (first published in 1942) reveal the full range of Thurber's genius, from his fanciful analysis of Shakespeare's Macbeth to his playful rendition of marital conflict and ultimately, his serious consideration of murders unsolved. His final memorial tribute to his dog fits the spirit of a light life, well-lived.

    " If you haven't read Thurber, you owe it to yourself to give it a try. Another reviewer dinged it for being dated, but for me that is part of its charm. Wonderful short stories and essays with style and wit. Simply delightful. "

    " Thurber amuses me, in a quiet sort of way. Not doing-a-spit-take-with-my-own-spit sort of way. Just a little upturning on the lips on one side of the mouth. "

    " Thurber's brilliant at being Thurber. I always want him to come out on top, and of course he never truly does. He's my favorite example of "hapless." "
