Thurber and Company

The 125th anniversary of James Thurber’s birth arrives on Sunday, December 8, and this year fans of the legendary humorist have extra reason to celebrate. Launched earlier this fall, A Mile and a Half of Lines: The Art of James Thurber is a two-pronged presentation of Thurber’s drawings, both in an exhibition at the Columbus Museum of Art and as a lavish accompanying book by Thurber expert Michael J. Rosen, published by Ohio State University Press.

The Library of America notes the quasiquicentennial celebration of James Thurber‘s birth
by interviewing Michael J. Rosen, the writer of the book and curator of the exhibit.
