First published in 1949, Thurber Country remains a benchmark of satirical writing. Now, in this Simon & Schuster Classic Edition, is the original book, with a new introduction by Lillian Ross.

The fact that James Thurber
wrote this collection
of pieces
is,
of course,
a publisher's blurb
in itself.
It therefore is necessary
simply to give
the reader
some factual idea
of
what sort of pieces
they are.
There are
26 of them.
Most
(including "File and Forget,"
a correspondence
with his publishers
which is not
recommended to people
who have
a tendency
to get bad hiccoughs
from
too much laughing)
have
already appeared
in The New Yorker.
Seven pieces
have appeared
in The Bermudian
and have therefore
never
been published
in this country.
You will find
Thurber Country
a place
not difficult to enter,
but
hard to leave.
