James Thurber has been called "one of our great American institutions' (Stanley Walker), "a magnificent satirist (Boston Transcript
), and "a Joyce in false-face" (New York Times
). The New York Herald Tribune
submits that he is "as blithe as Benchley...as savage as Swift...surprisingly wise and witty," while the Times
of London, out of enthusiasm and a profound regard for truth, proclaims that "Thurber is Thurber."
In Fables for Our Time, Thurber the Moralist is in the ascendancy. Here are a score or more lessons-in-prose dedicated to conventional sinners and proving--what you will. The fables are imperishably illustrated, and are supplemented by Mr. Thurber's own pictorial interpretations of famous poems in a wonderful and joyous assemblage.
