I was in Portland for a week, and reading this book for an hour every morning over coffee in the lobby of Fifth Avenue Suites ranks as one of the most pleasant reading experiences I've ever had. Many of Thurber's stories take place in hotel lobbies, so the synchronicity was palpable. Thurber himself is much more acerbic and witty than I remember him from elementary school. Rediscovering him through this collection of his best pieces, assembled by Garrison Keillor, was a joy. His autobiographical pieces on growing up in Ohio are hilarious stand-outs. Comedic intelligence in American prose does exist, and this is a good place to start exploring it. ( )

Vintage Thurber, collected from his many writings. Includes the entire Last Flower parable, which is a wonderful short work illustrated with the characteristically minimalist drawings that create additional delight in these works of humor. The work is at its best when he's writing about his childhood and the strange shenanigans and goings on of a very chaotic extended family. Although some of the works will not date well, because of the slang of the time, and numerous references to the technology of an earlier era, for those who enjoy turn of the century humor and dry wit, these works are an exercise in sheer delight. Some of his cartoons, though, fall totally flat, probably because they related to everyday events of the time, rather than the page-turners that entered the history books. Still, it is unusual that a book of this length (nearly 1000 pages) doesn't begin to feel too long until the final 200 pages, and that is a testament to the talent of the author (and probably the editor, as well).
