Thurber Countryby James Thurber
James Thurber is one of the greatest and most original American humorists. Perhaps the most amazing aspect of Thurber's genius is that he produced the majority of his famous articles and illustrations with greatly impaired eyesight, which deteriorated with age until he became entirely blind. As with everything else within his life, he viewed this in a positive manner: "My one-eighth vision happily obscures sad and ungainly sights, leaving only the vivid and the radiant...." THURBER COUNTRY is a collection of 25 short stories including: "What's So Funny?," "My Own Ten Rules for a Happy Marriage," "What a Lovely Generalization!," "File and Forget," "What Cocktail Party?" and "See No Weevil."
