Collected Fables (Paperback) – Autographed by the Editor

15.99

Edited and autographed by Michael J. Rosen, founding literary director of Thurber House, and with a foreward by Keith Olbermann, Collected Fables was published to coincide with the 125th anniversary of James Thurber’s birth. This treasury combines, for the first time, Fables for Our Time and Further Fables for Our Time with Thurber’s unpublished preface and ten previously uncollected fables. It is illustrated by ten contemporary artists including Seymour Chwast, Mark Ulriksen, Laurie Rosenwald, and R. O. Blechman.

James Thurber has been called “one of the world’s greatest humorists” by Alistair Cooke (Atlantic), “one of our great American institutions” (Stanley Walker), “a magnificent satirist” (Boston Transcript)—and few works reveal Thurber’s genius as powerfully as his fables. Perennially entertaining and astutely satirical, Thurber pinpricks the idiosyncrasies of life with verbal frivolity, hilarious insights, political shrewdness, and, of course, quirky, quotable morals.

Paperback edition, 320 pages.
