The Middle-Aged Man on the Flying Trapeze: A New Collection with Many Drawings
The Middle-Aged Man on the Flying Trapeze A New Collection with Many Drawings Author:James Thurber Thurber is Thurber and there is none other. There is a sort of unearthly quality to his writing and his drawing that has captured the imagination of the American people and held it. For who can read "The Private Life of Mr. Bidwell" or "A Preface to Dogs" without realizing that things are not what they seem--or, for that matter, what they actual... more »ly are? Besides those just named, the single chapter entitled "One is a Wanderer" will make this book an unforgettable experience for anyone who has ever felt rather homeless in a friendless universe.
There are thirty-six of Thurber's masterpieces included here, as well as a goodly collection of his inimitable drawings, that have long defied description or analysis.« less
