Alan Vanneman provides a thorough review of Thurber’s work, giving special consideration to Thurber’s “serious” articles and stories, which run the gamut from touching to nightmarish. Vanneman also includes a short collection of essays on Thurber’s fellow New Yorker writers E. B. White and Wolcott Gibbs and several more on the subject perhaps dearest to Thurber’s heart, words.
