The Thurber Carnival

by James Thurber

Trade Paperback, 450 pages

 

James Thurber was one of the finest humorists of the twentieth century (and a crack cartoonist to boot). A bestseller upon its initial publication in 1999, The Thurber Carnival captures the depth of his talent and the breadth of his wit. The stories compiled here, almost all of which first appeared in The New Yorker, are from his uproarious and candid collection My World and Welcome to It as well as from The Owl in the Attic, The Seal in the Bathroom, and Men, Women and Dogs. The book also includes many of his classic illustrations.

"One of the absolutely essential books of our time."

-- Saturday Review of Literature

 

Note: We only sell smart, well-written books that are fun to read. They are also all trade paperbacks (unless otherwise noted). Trade paperbacks are bigger than mass market paperbacks; they are more durable; the pages don't fall out; they have larger print; they are wider and easier to hold (especially while reading on your back) & they are more affordable than cumbersome hardbacks. You can even shade your eyes from the sun and take a nap with a trade paperback book.
