Thurber's humor holds up despite the fact that it was written more than 60 years ago. His minimalist drawings are delightfully expressive. This book might be more appreciated and enjoyed by those who enjoy reading gently satirical humor and those who have memories of the culture about which he wrote, but even readers with no close connection to his references should find images to laugh about.
