I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.
Deducted 1/2 star for being too short. Otherwise an excellent example of midcentury, midwestern humor excellently written.
This slim volumes reads as a collection of short essays about the early part of Thurber's life and his eccentric family. I won't go so far as to say they are laugh-out-loud funny, but they are very humorous. I'll be looking at his other works in the future with a much more open mind.
