Collected Fables

(2019)
A collection of stories by

 
 
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birth, this treasury combines, for the first time, Fables for Our Time and Further Fables for Our Time with Thurber's unpublished preface and ten previously uncollected or unpublished stories.

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.

Now, readers can savor 85 fables by the twentieth century's preeminent humorist

collected for the first time in a single anthology: Fables for Our Time, Further Fables for Our Time, Thurber's unpublished preface, and ten previously uncollected fables - illustrated by ten contemporary artists including Seymour Chwast, Mark Ulriksen, Laurie Rosenwald, and R. O. Blechman - Collected Fables is a must-have for readers of all ages.
